A one-block mistake led to a rude awakening Friday morning.
Nick Pierotti said he was sound asleep about 2 a.m. Friday when he awoke to police banging on his door. He said the police were shining bright lights into his house at 828 Ind., including his 11-year-old daughter's bedroom.
Police had the wrong house. The call was actually dispatched one block away to 828 La.
"He was knocking on my door instead," Pierotti said.
According to police spokesman Sgt. Dan Ward, some of the confusion occurred because the 911 call came in from Colorado Springs to check a person's welfare in Lawrence, but the phone went dead.
The caller was not sure of the address. Officers went to both locations. The correct address, Ward said, was on Louisiana Street, and the person there ended up being fine.
