Lawrence police broke up a fight involving several people early Friday outside Jet Lag bar, 610 Fla.

Two Lawrence men were arrested and two more men were being sought.

Officers were called to the bar at 1:45 a.m. When they arrived, a crowd of people dispersed, police said. A 22-year-old male bar employee suffered cuts but was treated at the scene and was not taken to a hospital. Two other male employees were treated for abrasions, police said.

Police arrested a 29-year-old Lawrence man for aggravated battery, disorderly conduct and obstruction of justice. He was taken to Douglas County Jail and charges were pending. He also had five warrants for failure to appear in court.

Police also arrested a 25-year-old Lawrence man for battery on a police officer.

Police still are looking for two other suspects. One of them is described as a black man between 30 and 35 years old. He is described as being between 5-foot-10 and 5-foot-11 and weighing 200 to 215 pounds. He has a crew cut and was last seen wearing a red leather jacket with a sports logo and blue jeans. The other suspect was not identified, and there was no description of him.

Question: If a new entertainment ordinance will be enacted, will this mean that the local country clubs which have liquor and beer licenses have to be registered?

One cannot be to careful when it comes to drunk golfers sword fighting with their long hard 3-wood drivers!

Why not blame Topeka and Kansas City for this one too. Don't we always do that,or we always gotta blame it on the black people. I betcha it was a bunch of white guys,only 2 posts. "Double Standard Lawrence At it's Finest"

Hawksley:

Haha, yes, they WERE black! The 5 outstanding warrants should have tipped you off. So I guess we will blame it on them. A double standard would more likely be one of these thug, wannabe, whack ass gangsters to actually act civil in a public place. When you want to cite racism, look to the source! Blacks are the biggest racists of all.

Oh my god shut them down - before they become like that other notorious bar that they blamed everything on even when the bad guys were in KC shooting each other and not even in Lawrence. Lawrence - stopped smoking - why not ban drinking and dancing - the movie foot loose is coming to me. Watch out Lawrence party people. No fun here, hey lets go to Topeka & KC and have fun? NOT
