The La Crosse man who shot a police officer has been sentenced to 15 years in prison. Allen Kruk will be on extended supervision for five years when he gets out. Kruk told the person writing the pre-sentence report he was hallucinating when he shot Officer Dustin Darling. The prosecutor acknowledges that Kruk was dealing with mental health and drug issues at the time. Darling was shot in August of last year while he was trying to arrest Kruk during a domestic incident on the city’s south side. The shot hit Darling’s protective vest; the officer returned fire and wounded Kruk.
