A court appearance Monday for a La Crosse man arrested on kidnapping and battery charges.
Police say after leaving a bar with his girlfriend this past weekend, 46-year-old, Shawn Stromberg refused to let her out of his car following an argument. The police report says, when his girlfriend called police, he punched her in the face. When police tried to call back, Stromberg hung up the phone and punched his girlfriend again. He then drove her to Viroqua and went to a motel to clean up her injuries.
Stromberg is in jail on a $25,000 cash bond. He is due back in court Thursday.
