LA CROSSE, Wisconsin (WXOW)-- Superbowl Sunday is this weekend, and for the vast majority of people it's simply good entertainment and some fun often shared with friends.
The focus is different, however, for a local domestic violence shelter. They say they see an increase in domestic disturbances.
"We see more crisis line calls, somewhat, not a huge amount," said Ann Kappauf, the executive director of New Horizons Shelter. "Often times it's because there's the drinking involved. And although drinking does not cause a person to be abusive, it's almost like that liquid courage."
If you need assistance you can call the new horizons crisis line at 1-888-231-0066.
