(9/20/13) A La Crosse man is due in court tomorrow, for allegedly stabbing a housemate with a steak knife as they argued about rent money. 

55-year-old James Curtis is facing possible counts of reckless endangerment, battery, and four-time drunk driving.  He's being held under a five-thousand-dollar bond.   Police said Curtis stabbed the housemate above one of his eyes early last Saturday, and then drove off.  Police said Curtis drove through a stop sign and lost control of his auto.  Officers said he gave a false name, and claimed he did not commit the stabbing.  His blood alcohol level was said to be point-18 when he was stopped.  The stabbing victim was treated for a two-inch cut.
