May 21, 2006


Law enforcement report

¢ Lawrence police arrested a 30-year-old Lawrence man on four HIV-related charges Saturday morning, according to jail records. A report on the arrest and possible allegations were unavailable Saturday night. Under a 1999 law, it is a felony to knowingly expose another to a life-threatening communicable disease.

¢ At least three Lawrence men were arrested after an altercation at 2:30 a.m. Saturday in the 1700 block of Harper Street during a party there, said Sgt. Mark Warren, a Lawrence Police spokesman. Two people were taken to Lawrence Memorial Hospital, where they were treated and released, Warren said. One injured person, a 20-year-old man, was arrested on charges of battery and possession of drug paraphernalia. He remains in jail on $2,792 bond, according to Douglas County Jail records.

An 18-year-old suspect was arrested on a charge of battery and remains in custody on $1,000 bond. A 20-year-old man also was arrested on a charge of aggravated battery, and he remains in jail on $22,500 bond.

¢ Two 20-year-old Lawrence men were arrested Saturday evening for throwing water balloons, said Sgt. Michael Monroe, a police spokesman.

Monroe said a full report on the incident was unavailable, but that the suspects were arrested after officers received a complaint. According to jail records, the two were booked into jail just before 8 p.m. on charges of disorderly conduct and missiles, which Monroe confirmed were the water balloons. They were each held on $100 bond.

¢ Someone entered some students' unlocked dorm room at McCollum Hall between 2 a.m. and 6:30 a.m. Tuesday while the students slept and took items valued at $763, according to a Kansas University Public Safety Office report.

Injury accident

¢ A Basehor woman was injured Saturday afternoon when her vehicle rolled over on Kansas Highway 32 in southeastern Leavenworth County.

At 12:49 p.m., Patricia Garcia, 23, tried to turn left in her 1994 Toyota Corolla onto southbound 174th Street, but instead she lost control of the vehicle on the gravel, according to a report from the Kansas Highway Patrol.

The car swerved into the west ditch and rolled once. Garcia and both passengers were wearing their seat belts. She was taken to Providence Medical Center in Kansas City, Kan., and the two passengers were not injured. A nursing supervisor said Saturday evening that Garcia had been released from the hospital.

Fleeba: Surely you must be smarter than that! These idiots were most likely launching them at unsuspecting people or cars. I've had someone throw a partially frozen water balloon at my car near 7th & Michigan. Luckily, it didn't break the windshield. Water balloons can be dangerous if put to use by idiots.

Uh, this probably isn't Richardson. The age isn't right.
