Medicine: Researchers find new use for schizophrenia drugs A team of researchers led by Dr. Stephen Schroeder, right, director of the Kansas University Center on Developmental Disabilities, has published a report showing how a schizophrenia treatment drug can also help children and adults with mental retardation and self-mutilation disorders. The drug appears to work by blocking the action of two brain chemicals important to mood regulation, Schroeder said. _________ Courts: Football players’ hearings on theft charges postponed Kansas University running back Reggie Duncan is scheduled to appear in Douglas County District Court at 1:30 p.m. today on charges stemming from an alleged purse theft. Duncan and quarterback Mario Kinsey both were initially scheduled for trial in the case Monday before Judge Jack Murphy. Murphy however, was gone for the day, an assistant in his office said. Kinsey is now scheduled to appear before Murphy at 4 p.m. Nov. 30. Duncan and Kinsey are charged with the June 12 theft of a purse from a KU student on campus. In addition, Kinsey is charged with two counts of unlawful use of a credit card belonging to the student. Duncan is charged with one count of unlawful use of a credit card. All the charges are misdemeanors. Attorneys for the players said during a court hearing Oct. 10 that their clients would apply to enter a diversion program. _________ Crime: Poorly timed phone call leads to resident’s arrest A man wanting to buy crack cocaine couldn’t have picked a worse time to place a purchase call Saturday afternoon. Lawrence Police answered the phone. Officers were in the process of searching a house in western Lawrence when the call for crack was made, Sgt. Mike Pattrick said. He declined to say where the house was or what officers were searching for. After taking the phone call, however, police went to a residence in the 1900 block of West 31st Street and arrested a 43-year-old Lawrence man, Pattrick said. No other information was available Monday. _________ Highways: Two injured in one-car wreck Two men were injured in a one-vehicle accident about 1 a.m. Monday on U.S. Highway 40 west of Lawrence. No names had been released, but one man was taken by air ambulance to Kansas University Medical Center, Kansas City, Kan. The second man was taken by Lawrence-Douglas County Fire & Medical to Lawrence Memorial Hospital. The men’s vehicle was eastbound on the highway about a half-mile east of East 600 Road, the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office said. The vehicle ran off the highway and struck a utility pole. An investigation continued late Monday, and no other information was available.
