Three men were arrested early Sunday on charges of battery and felony criminal damage after an incident in the 900 block of Tennessee.

According to Lawrence Police Sgt. Susan Hadl, the men, two from Shawnee and one from Missouri, were involved in criminal damage to a residence and battery that occurred at a party that spanned two residences. The Shawnee men were 18 and 23 years old while the Missouri man was 24 years old.

Police responded to a report of a large disturbance about 1:30 a.m. Sunday. When the first officer arrived, a man took off running eastbound from the 900 block of Tennessee. The man was detained shortly thereafter in an alley in the 200 block of West 10th.

Witnesses and victims identified the man and two others as suspects associated with the criminal damage and battery.

No one was seriously injured in the incident.

According to the Douglas Country Sheriffs Office, they were not all from Shawnee. In fact, one is from Lawrence.

It was really noisy in the parking lot at 11th and Vermont last night. Couples fighting around 2 and again 3am. Is there something about parking lots that encourages violence? I thought about going down to see about it, then thought that by the time I got downstairs they would be gone. Then I went back to sleep. I would like to know what kind of damage happened to the residence. The party spanned two houses? And, they say neighbors don't know each other any more.

Need to put up some check point stops and stop cars coming in from Topeka and KC Check drivers licenses, registrations and for guns and drugs You would be able to keep some of these incidents from happening in Lawrence
