Man Who Stabbed Cop Going Back To Hospital

Joseph Smith is going back to the hospital...

A La Crosse County judge rules that Smith is again 'showing signs of mental illness,' after being released from the Mendota hospital earlier this year. Smith originally was committed four years ago, after wounding a La Crosse policeman in the chest with a screwdriver. Experts testified today that since his release into the community a few weeks ago, Smith has had hallucinations about shootings happening near his home, or police being outside his home, and has called the police for help.
