Lawrence man arrested after making threats

August 8, 2010


A 34-year-old Lawrence man was arrested Sunday morning after making threats during a domestic dispute.

According to Lawrence Police Sgt. Damon Thomas, the incident began about 2:50 a.m. in the 1100 block of New Jersey Street. The man was reportedly threatening another individual while carrying a knife in his mouth. Thomas said the man was making a scene but had not made any direct threats with the weapon.

The man was booked into the Douglas County Jail about 3:09 a.m. on two counts of aggravated assault.

No one was injured during the incident.

how do you threaten someone with a knife in your mouth? Does the knife not fall out when you open your mouth to speak said threats? Secondly, who carries a knife in their mouth, other than pirates.

Why couldnt it be a pirate? In fact, one of our swabbies failed to show up for the morning pillage today. Pirates are very real.

Was this Lawrence man really from Lawrence or a guest of the wet shelter?

If he's less careful he'll be speaking with a forked tongue.

If he would have had a gun in his mouth and a carry permit he would have been OK.

Perhaps he felt as if he'd been dissed.
