Prosecutors file 3 charges against Lawrence man accused of running from officer

August 3, 2011


Douglas County prosecutors Tuesday filed three charges against a 20-year-old Lawrence man who was accused of running from a police officer after a reported theft Monday from Walmart, 3300 Iowa.

Prosecutors charged Oscar R. Gonzales with theft, obstruction and misdemeanor battery of a law enforcement officer. He was also arrested on several warrants. Sgt. Matt Sarna, a Lawrence police spokesman, said Walmart staff members alleged Gonzales and a woman left the store without paying for several items. An officer located a vehicle matching the description given near Clinton Parkway and Kasold Drive, but Gonzales jumped out and ran away before the officer caught him in the area, Sarna said.

During a hearing Tuesday a judge set Gonzales’ bond at $2,000, cash or surety. Police later located a 21-year-old woman and arrested her in connection with the case, but she posted $2,500 bond and was given notice to appear in court Aug. 15. Prosecutors can file charges against her before then.

I have no stock in the company that makes Xanax so when I say take one to help calm yourself down, I gain nothing (except maybe less annoying posts from you).

i checked and there is nothing that says he is an illegal. Are you just assuming that from his name? That's pretty bigoted of you. His family might have been living in the area of the US longer than any of your ancestors. If the British hadn't defeated the Spanish Armada, then we wouldn't have been an English-speaking country anyway. Spain claimed all this part of the world. Did all of the Spanish-speaking land owners and workers move out of Texas when they broke away from Mexico. No. Did all of the hispanic people move from the southwest when Mexico ceded that terrritory to the US? No. You need to learn more US and world history.

Lighten up, Francis. It's not like Biden called the guy a terrorist or something.
