Milwaukee mayor may need more surgery on hand

Physical therapy may not be enough for Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett's injured hand.

It's possible the politician may have to have another surgical procedure.

The mayor's hand was badly hurt when he was attacked by a man with a tire iron outside the Wisconsin State Fair last August.

Barrett was responding to a woman's cries for help. He had 10 pins inserted in his broken fingers.

Barrett has been going to physical therapy twice a week since he got out of the hospital.

The man accused of attacking him, Anthony Peters, has pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity in the case.
