La Crosse chase, crash suspect out of hospital, appears in court

LA CROSSE, Wis. -- A La Crescent man arrested after crashing his SUV following a high-speed chase with La Crosse Police makes his first court appearance.

Cory Johnson, 33, was hospitalized after the early morning crash August 3. Police say before the crash, Johnson led officers on a high-speed chase that lasted about a mile before Johnson hit several parked cars and flipped his SUV near 11th and King Streets.

A passenger in the SUV had minor injuries, but was treated and released.

A judge Tuesday set a $20,000 bond for Johnson, who was out on bond and wanted on warrants for misdemeanor battery and disorderly conduct charges.


Johnson faces possible charges of OWI causing injury, possession with intent to deliver cocaine, fleeing an officer and recklessly endangering safety.

Police say the passenger will likely not face charges.
