La Salle Police Department

Being drunk and stupid usually isn’t an excuse that works with police.

Justin Weger of La Salle allegedly gave that story to officers after being confronted about allegedly making a specific threat to murder a cop and shoot up the La Salle Police Department.  The 33-year-old was being interviewed Wednesday afternoon when officers say he told them he meant no harm with his Facebook post and was just being drunk and stupid. 

Weger was arrested for disorderly conduct and also issued city ordinance tickets for having an illegal amount of pot.  He came up with $200 and was released on bond. The case is being forward to the states attorney’s office for possible felony charges.
