Cape mayor has surgery on knee
Cape Girardeau Mayor Jay Knudtson had surgery on a knee Saturday morning, after being injured Friday night while participating in a charity basketball game at the A.C. Brase Arena Building.
"He snapped a tendon and dislocated his kneecap," city spokeswoman Tracey Glenn said Saturday. "He's supposed to be in the hospital until Monday."
Knudtson, who was elected last April, fell in the basketball game that served as a benefit for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. Knudtson was taken by ambulance to Southeast Missouri Hospital.
Glenn said she thought Knudtson might have to wear some kind of brace and use crutches. She said doctors told Knudtson he also would probably have to have three or four months of rehabilitation.
"He sounded OK," Glenn said. "He's recovering."
