LA CROSSE (AP) – Police say a La Crosse man accused of stalking his ex-girlfriend and ramming his vehicle into five parked cars outside a bar threatened to kill officers as they arrested him.

Police say the 29-year-old man smashed into his ex-girlfriend’s vehicle, four others and a fence outside the Track Two bar in La Crosse. One of the vehicles struck a pedestrian.

Authorities say the man bit two witnesses as they tried to pull him out of his vehicle Friday night. Officers arrived and twice used a stun gun to subdue the man. WXOW-TV says police are recommending charges of stalking, recklessly endangering safety and other counts.
