Law enforcement report

• Lawrence police arrested a 24-year-old Lawrence man outside the Phoggy Dog, 2228 Iowa, after he confronted bar staff with a knife.

Sgt. Susan Hadl said police were called to the bar at 2 a.m. Thursday morning to reports of drug activity in the parking lot. The bar staff confronted the individuals and asked them to move along, Hadl said. One of the men reportedly then turned to bar staff with a knife in his hand and said he had no intention of leaving.

Hadl said the man’s confrontational attitude and exposed knife left the staff disturbed and frightened. Bar employees subdued the man until police arrived. Officers found a knife on the man as well as a small amount of marijuana.
