Law enforcement report

Police reports

  • A 21-year-old Lawrence man was arrested about 4 a.m. Friday in connection with felony theft and felony criminal damage to property. He was released on $2,000 bond and is to make his first court appearance Nov. 8. A police report indicates that the arrest stemmed from an incident that began in the drive-through window at the Burger King Restaurant, 1107 W. Sixth. Police Sgt. Rick Nickell said a disagreement erupted between groups of people who were waiting in line in two separate vehicles. The occupants of a pickup truck then got out of their truck and allegedly began hitting the occupants of a Ford Explorer as well as the car. The occupants of the Explorer then drove off. Nickell said the groups met up again when the occupants of the Explorer stopped at Seventh and Missouri to check damage to their vehicle. The report indicates that two of the eight men who were in the Explorer were treated and released at LMH for injuries they received in the various incidents. Nickell said the man was arrested after he allegedly drove the pickup truck to LMH from Seventh and Missouri.

Criminal case proceedings

  • Charles E. Smith, 45, 1900 W. 31st, was recently sentenced to 30 months in the custody of the secretary of corrections for the July 3 robbery of a Linwood man in the 2700 block of Iowa. The victim's wallet and its contents were stolen. Court records indicate Smith also is to pay court costs and complete three years of post-release supervision when he is released from prison.
  • Prosecutors have dismissed criminal charges that were filed against a 17-year-old Lawrence youth in September after an incident during which a bicyclist was run down on an East Lawrence street. Dustin R. Causer, 2701 Rawhide, was initially charged with aggravated battery, attempted aggravated robbery and conspiracy to commit aggravated robbery. Court records indicate that the charges were dismissed without prejudice pending further investigation. That means they could be refiled. Charges are pending against two other youths who were arrested in connection with the incident.
