Man arrested for allegedly threatening sister with knife

December 29, 2010


A 37-year-old Lawrence woman alleged her brother threatened her and pulled a knife during a disturbance at 8:30 p.m. Monday in the 1900 block of East 19th Street. Police later arrested the 32-year-old Lawrence man on an aggravated assault charge. He remained in the Douglas County Jail Tuesday, but prosecutors had not yet filed official charges.

smitty, I am not being antagonictic here, but you probably should read the updated definition of DV. It has changed several times and you might be (not sure) going off the original description. And besides, he allegedly had a knife, which would pretty much call for an arrest in any situation.

we can joke because she's apparently uninjured.
I hope she gets some counseling for this as it would've been traumatic.

you can pick your friends. you can pick your neighbors. you can pick your fellow workers somewhat. but you sure can't pick family!
