Charges dropped in Allstars altercation

Testimony by witness doesn’t match statements he gave police

December 27, 2007


An assault charge was dismissed today against a man who had been accused of threatening someone with a gun outside a North Lawrence strip club.

Assistant Douglas County District Attorney Angela Wilson moved to dismiss the aggravated assault charge during a preliminary hearing for the suspect, Anthony L. Kennon, 26, of Lawrence. The motion was granted by Judge Stephen Six.

Wilson made her motion after the testimony of the alleged victim, Henry Arias. Arias' testimony did not match information he gave police following the Nov. 4 incident at Allstars, 913 N. Second St., Wilson said.

Arias' brother, Luis Arias, 32, was shot in the leg during a disturbance that night outside the club, and several people were fighting when police arrived. No one has been charged with the actual shooting.

During his testimony, Henry Arias said he saw a gun in Kennon's vehicle but he said nothing about seeing Kennon holding it or pointing it at anyone.

Shows how much you guys know Anthony, everyone is quick to judge and not even know what is going on............ here's a good quote for you guys " Before you judge me take a look at you. Can't you find something better to do? Point the finger, slow to understand ignorance and arrogence go hand in hand." If you only knew what what going on, your comments just make all of you look ignorant.

Well then with that said, people changed if you havent noticed, so maybe you should know what your talking about before you start running your mouth. I have been married to him for 5 years now and he is alot different then what he was. Yeah he acts up when he is drunk but who doesnt. He was in the wrong place at the wrong time. I was there I KNOW!! And you all still look ignorant with your comments!!!!!
