MADISON, Wis. -

Madison Diocese Bishop Robert Morlino is hospitalized in Baltimore after falling and bumping his head, according to Madison Catholic Diocese spokesperson Brent King.

"He was walking to dinner with a bishop friend, wasn't watching where he was going and he missed a step," King said.  "He tried to catch himself, but made it worse by taking a few more steps and hit his head."

King expects Morino to be OK and to be released from the hospital today.

"He broke a blood vessel in his eye, which makes him look like he has a black eye," King said.  "He stayed at the hospital overnight for observation, but he plans to come home Thursday as scheduled."
