6 arrested, 4 injured in brawl at Lawrence night club

April 23, 2006

Advertisement

A late-night brawl inside a downtown Lawrence night club sent at least six people to jail and another four to the hospital.

The fight broke out inside Abe & Jake's Landing, 8 E. 6th St., around 1 a.m. this morning.

About dozen vehicles from local law enforcement agencies, including the Lawrence Police, KU and Douglas County Sheriff's Department, as well as officials from Lawrence/Douglas County Fire-Medical, packed the 600 block of New Hampshire in response to the incident.

Sergeant Mark Warren with the Lawrence Police Department said the incident occured inside the bar and at least four people went to the hospital with lacerations. At least six others were arrested on charges of disorderly conduct, Warren said.

The crowd was "less than cooperative," according to Warren.

It's the latest in a string of incidents at the downtown Lawrence night spot.

Just last weekend, a 22-year-old Topeka man was arrested on aggravated assault charges after pulling a handgun on another man in the parking lot following an altercation inside.

That just means people will start drinking earlier. How about we employ the 'not be a moron' solution first.

I would suggest that if all bars and clubs, especially the downtown ones where the violence seems most likely, were to close at 12am, Lawrence would become a much safer city in which to live. And it does seem that a high percentage of these violent incidents involve people who don't live in Lawrence.

"A walled and gated city. Now that's a new urban concept. Which was, actually, quite popular at one time to keep out Barbarians and other threatening undesirables. Wonder why that passed out of favor..." "r a moat....??? "

Read "The Parable of the Sower" by Octvia Butler for a look at the future. A world where each cul-de-sac or neighborhood is on its own gate/wall/moat and the denizens inside are heavily and well armed. Where if you want police, fire, ambulance or other services, you pay for them (dearly). A place where going to grocery store doesn't happen; you grow or raise what you need, or go out to steal from others. Cause at the rate we're going - economically as well as socially (note - being on a board like this seems to bring out the uncivilized side of some), we are all going to live to see a world where each person's life is only as safe/good as the walls they have around their home.

ROFLMAO, of course you are right. I'm so embarrased!

Why do all the KC/Topeka young bucks come to Lawrence to rut? Because of all the hot young Lawrence coed ..... umm, open-minded, multi-partner, sexually active, females.

Ah, Sigmund, that would be "rut".

Runt is a small person or animal.

Check out the Kansan story on the fight. For once, they got a better scoop than the LJW. And as usual, the fight involved/was started by somebody from KCK. I know it keeps starting arguments on here but the fights in Lawrence happen at the bars where KCK/Topeka people hang out. How often do you hear about violence at The Hawk, the Wheel, Yacht Club, the Ranch, Louise's Downtown? Never - because the people from KCK/Topeka hang out at A&J's, Brother's, Bottleneck, and Granada. Drunk frat boys/sorority girls may be annoying but they rarely end up in brawls like this.

I know one thing that there is not enough security when people are outside waiting in line and most of them are scuffling and cutting in line and so forth. And I think that it is more a safety issue, something needs to done.

Everyone is in such fine form this morning were going to have to get 50 pts for EVERY post on the board.

Curious about the "afred" person...and can we use forms of the word elite twice in one post? Is that allowed? I thought this was elite free Sunday! I was giving him the chance he might be kidding, but the afred name gives me shivers down my brokeback. Gotta keep those fred supporters outta Lawrence! =======================================

Maybe the word "elite" is today's word on his word a day calendar.

Hey -- lets all take on an elitist attitude toward the citizens of our neighboring capitol city from whence the problem may or may not be coming. I'm not sure of the EXACT solution to the increased number of violent incidents downtown, but personal displays of elitism and snobbery is SURELY a step in the right direction. Good job all.

Not everyone from Topeka or K.C. come to cause problems. However I think if a certain element from those locations keep coming here and causing problems then we need to make sure that the things that attract them do not occur here. Much like you make sure not to have crumbs lying around so as not to attract cockroaches.

Why is a bar fight making news anyway...think about it. How many have we all seen in our lives, I've got a scar over my left eye from some "weekend cowboy" I'd never spoken to; didn't know from Adam, he thought his sweetie was looking at me or something, I never really figured out why, and who cares........BFD, I was so hammered I didn't know how bad it was until my shirt starting turning red.

from the lmh article..

"We call it the 'some dude syndrome,' as in 'I was just standing there and some dude hit me,'" Robinson says.

That's sort of what happened to 22-year-old Nick Huckabey, who drove to Lawrence from Overland Park to celebrate a friend's birthday at Abe & Jake's Landing, a popular night spot at 8 E. Eighth St.

"I was just hanging out," Huckabey says, "and this guy was getting beat up pretty bad - getting kicked in the head and stuff.

"There weren't any bouncers around, so I tried to stop it. The next thing I know, I got hit."

He lowers an ice pack to reveal a deep gash between his lip and nose.

"My whole face is numb right now," he says, letting a nurse know his anesthetic had taken effect.

Because Huckabey's lip, Robinson says, was cut "through and through," the on-call plastic surgeon, Dr. Lee Reussner, is called in to do the stitches.

It's now a little after 2 a.m. Sunday.

Seriously when did Lawrence become the city of choice for gang banger types to come party?

The archives will bear his out. The gang banger situation was exalted as a grand effort of Ron Olin to be able to manage a neutral territory for Topeka and KC gang bangers to meet in the middle and learn to all get along.

Like most of Olin's poor arrogant management choices, it hasn't worked as planned. Olin is having to work harder to maintain his image and the officers on the street and the citizenry are in harms way unnessarily to bolster his ego gratification needs. (sic)

I know that the perps are not yet said to be from Topeka...but I think that the LPD should have check posts at all entrances to the city on weekend nights to turn all Topeka thugs back to go back home to destroy their own pathetic crime-filled city!!! Seriously when did Lawrence become the city of choice for gang banger types to come party? All rap concerts should also be banned in Lawrence, keep that crap in KC or Topeka. Hey I listen to rap/hip-hop but I've never heard of anything good happening at a hip-hop concert, have you? Anyway, just getting sick of the increase in violence in this usually non-violent city. I may have to move to yuppyville JoCo.

gee, just last weekend, a topeka man (a topeka man?) was arrested on aggravated assault charges after pulling a gun? i guess that advertising program the City of Lawrence (us taxpayers) sent to the topeka newspaper paid off!

i will be laughing myself silly if this group arrested tonight is from topeka as well.
