Guy Slashes Friend, Charged with Mayhem
A La Crosse guy will spend his Thanksgiving week healing from some pretty significant stab wounds. Cops say the 44 year-old apparently upset his roommate, 37 year-old John Rera on Saturday. To the point where, cops say, Rera stabbed his buddy. Actually more like slashed him. Across the chest, across the back. Doctors say the guy would have died if he hadn't got help right away. Police suspect Rera might have been on an Adderall bender. Apparently he told cops, he just wasn't thinking straight. Rera faces a number of charges, including one for reckless endangerment and one for mayhem.
