Lawrence man arrested after threatening to hit couple with vehicle

July 17, 2010


A 28-year-old Lawrence man was arrested Saturday morning after he reportedly tried to strike two people with his vehicle.

According to Lawrence Police Sgt. Ted Bordman, a man and woman were walking together when the suspect drove up to them. The driver appeared to be attempting to strike the two walking and they were forced to jump out of the way to avoid being hit.

Bordman said the suspect then continued to threaten the two.

The suspect left his vehicle and walked away on foot before being apprehended in the 1300 block of Connecticut Street.

The man was booked into the Douglas County Jail about 4 a.m. on charges of aggravated assault and criminal threat.

Listen up, people. Threatening people, in here or on the street, with a deadly weapon like a car is a good way to end up dead.

Yes, it is a deadly weapon.

It's good to know that trying to hit someone with your car is against the law and, in Lawrence, if you do that, you will be prosecuted! From now on, when I am driving and I get angry at couples, (and I know this will happen... it always does around 4 a.m.), I am going to do my best not to let my temper take over to the point where I might aim my car at them. From this point forward, I vow to get out of the car and slowly back away, or even better, to find another way to express my anger, maybe by honking my horn or rolling down my window and screaming a few obsenities, or perhaps both. But please, people, do not try to hit others with your car, even if they deserve it. It's just not worth it.
