John Tolar's Very Bad Day
When John Tolar woke up on Friday morning, apparently he didn't plan on robbing a bank. Police reports released this morning in La Crosse paint the picture of a guy who decided on a moment's notice to rob the M & I bank Rose street on Friday. They say Tolar woke up in a shelter for alcoholics with two bucks in his pocket. Only after a couple of beers and a bus ride to the northside did he decide he was going to rob the bank. Tolar apparently told cops he just needed some drug money. In fact, they say one of the first things he did after Friday's heist was to buy 200 bucks worth of crack, which he smoked during a standoff on Friday afternoon at a northside home.
