A 22-year-old Lawrence man was arrested early Saturday morning for aggravated battery in the 2500 block of West Sixth Street.

According to Lawrence Police Sgt. Susan Hadl, a 24-year-old Lawrence man was sitting outside the Cadillac Ranch with a friend when the suspect approached him and asked if he had a problem. When the victim explained he didn’t, the suspect left but then returned and punched the victim in the face.

The victim was taken to the hospital with a facial laceration, treated and released. The suspect was later located and arrested.

---problem is, we all "have a problem." if the punchee had only answered correctly, this little dustup could have been avoided.

of course, "a problem" is in the eye of the one with the problem, and not in the eye of the beholder.

for that matter how do we know we have a problem?

so glad that neither a gun or knife was involved.

Next time..... duck. Top of the head is the hardest part of the body and the puncher probably would have broken his hand.

whatadrag, The LJWorld will not print the local news, pretty pathetic if you ask me. You can read any other paper in the state of Kansas and see the names of those arrested, involved in traffic accidents, and issued notices to appear. They also listthe name of those convicted of driving under the influence of alcohol as a deterrent. NOT the LJWorld.

Having lived in Lawrence for the last 25 years I only subscribed to the LJWorld for about two months then decided I could read the Topeka Capital and get more information on what’s going on locally then reading the LJWorld. Most of my neighbors do the same.

Someday maybe the LJWorld will wake up and pay attention to their circulation numbers and think, what are we doing wrong!!

But you obviously read it on-line. In other words, you just don't want to pay for it.

Where is this "Cadillac Ranch"? Hey "skinny" do the other papers get the name of the place right? Note to LJW the Cadillac has left the ranch. The sign reads "The Ranch"

Batman came out of the mancave and handled the weasel without a punch. I would have preferred to see the taser effect from not your average joe.
