Man injured after fight outside Lawrence bar

May 23, 2008


A man was injured and taken to a Kansas City area hospital following a fight early Friday morning outside a Lawrence bar, Lawrence police said.

At 2 a.m. police responded to a disturbance call in the 1500 block of West Fifth Street where they found the injured man, police spokesman Sgt. Paul Fellers said.

The 21-year-old man was taken by ambulance to Lawrence Memorial Hospital and then flown to a Kansas City area hospital, Fellers said. His condition was not available.

Investigating officers learned that at least two people became involved in an argument inside Jet Lag Lounge, 610 Fla. They later met outside and the victim may have been struck in the head with an object causing him to fall. Someone also may have driven a vehicle over the victim's legs, Fellers said.

Police are continuing to investigate and no other information was available. If anyone has information that would help police they are asked to call 832-7509.

There are people injured every Thursday, Friday and Saturday from bar fights in this town. I love how the newspaper picks up on something and makes a story out of it. Why don't they have a crimes section that actually keeps track of ALL the police reports?

There probably aren't many frat boys in town right now. Graduation was last Sunday and finals ended last week.

I live just around the corner from both the Jet Lag and Louises West.You can't leave your windows open in the summer time due to all the noise.All the drunks piss whenever and wherever they like.Bars shouldn't be so close to residential neighborhoods.If you can't hold your liquor without fighting, maybe you shouldn't drink.

Read headline, was trying to guess bar...1) Crosstown2) Brothers3) Jet LegAnd doc1, the paper will include the injury when it says "flown to a Kansas City area hospital"

I was guessing it was The Crosstown but oh well...I think it's pretty funny the KDOC Parole Office is located next door to The Crosstown. Obviously the State of Kansas is just trying to make those monthly parole check-ins easier for their clients.
