A KU student was issued a citation Monday night for her involvement in a car accident that forced a local business to close.

According to Lawrece police Sgt. Damon Thomas, officers received a call from someone who said they thought they knew the owner of the vehicle that ran into Louise’s West, 1307 West Seventh St. early Sunday morning.

Thomas said the owner had tried to report the vehicle stolen, but an investigation into the claim revealed it was not.

Police identified the driver in the incident as Brandy Fausnaught, 22, Lawrence. The woman had been driving her friend’s car, a silver SUV, early Sunday morning when the accident occurred.

Thomas said the woman was not arrested, but was issued a citation about 9:05 p.m. Monday for leaving the scene of an accident, reckless driving, driving with a revoked or suspended license and failure to report an accident.

I love how people treat this as an unforgivable crime. This place does nothing but draw filthy and destructive people into that neighborhood to make people who live there miserable. I hope its condemned.

Texting while on cell phone ordering K-2 with beer between knees. When everybody knows humans can only focus on two things at once . . .

Is it normal for the name not to be published? I know the LJW doesn't post the names of folks suspected of crimes, but this woman was issued a citation, so shouldn't her name be listed?

How many more drunken establishments can she hit! Might just be mothers against drunk drivers new poster child. If they can't serve, they can't swerve could be the motto.

I wonder if the person would have been someone other than a female, the outcome would have been different? I think had this been a male, the guy would have been arrested... How are the citations she received not grounds for being arrested?

How about charging the vehicle owner with falsely reporting a felony, which is also a felony not just some wimpy citation.

So I catch one of them hiding in my garage a year later and he gets a misdemeanor trespassing and a little fine. What did they think he was doing there?

She should be made responsible for repairing any and all damages caused by her stupidity. And cleaning toilets for a year is not a bad idea either.

How much revenue is lost due to the closure of west?...the driver needs to be hauled before the scene of the crime and have the ?#@$ slapped out of them....that will learn 'em.

Lady J wrong answer Judge McGrath is probably the best judge we have in town. He will put people in jail.

I wonder if her parent's had spanked her (corporal punishment) would she still have become an outlaw?

Never thought I would see the day I actually agreed with One_eye. Judge McGrath is an idiot and let thiefs go free even though they admit stealing.

Seventh Street is a drunkard's highway through the neighborhood. Louise's West has sent their share of wasted patrons down that road, and this event seems almost like karma payback.

indeed, driver was almost certainly wasted!

once again, drunk driver on our streets gets off with barely a slap on one demure little wrist.

maybe Louise's should require the drunken/brat to perform service...perhaps she should be required to clean their toilets for a year.

Let''s see . It works this way. Girl goes to court, Judge asks her when she wants to serve her jail time. Girl responds, well I could drive back from St. Louis on the weekends and do it the. Judge says to girl "you have no driver's license and how do you expect to get back to Lawrence?" Judge then says "what day can your mother drive her with you to leave you in jail?"

I say this scenario in action in Judge McGrath's courtroom. It is better than Judge Judy.

p.s. And did I include St. Louis in my previous post as the driver being from as well as Minneappolis, Chicago and Overland Park. and Wichita no less as well.

Owner tried to report the car as stolen but the driver had the keys to drive it. uh huh!

Geez louise, you'd think there were never any accidents before the invention of the cell phone.

Much more likely, at that hour, that alcohol was involved. Too bad they weren't able to catch the little idiot sooner--apparently, 9:05 pm Monday was too late to get an effective blood test. Driving on a suspended license, reckless driving, leaving the scene of an accident, wrecking a friend's car..... one class act!

Just glad she didn't kill anyone. Better to hit an empty building than an occupied vehicle.
