A 46-year-old Lawrence man was arrested on suspicion of driving while intoxicated early Friday morning after his sport-utility vehicle struck a parked vehicle in southwestern Lawrence.

According to Douglas County Jail records, Andrew McKinney Hammond was booked into jail at 2:45 a.m.

Kim Murphree, a Lawrence police spokesman, said the crash occurred when Hammond was headed west on Lazy Brook Lane in a black 2003 Mitsubishi Outlander and struck a parked black Jeep Cherokee. He attempted to get out of the vehicle but fell to the ground incurring minor injuries. Police were called at 2:14 a.m. The accident site is southwest of Clinton Parkway and Kasold Drive.

Hammond was booked into jail on suspicion of his third DUI, a felony, and driving on a suspended license. Information about the case was forwarded to the Douglas County prosecutors, according to jail records.

uh LJW, the article doesn't match the headline at this time!

however, I am familiar with the story the headline should lead to ! I think the probation is far too soft on her.

I don't condone violence, but all bad- faith judges like Peggy Kittel have to teach the general public is that honor among thieves is the norm in Douglas County. Scoundrels and haters rule in this town.

They are both probably home right now, exercising their "right" to make more children.

When someone beats their dog, Animal Control removes the animal.

Yet, in this situation the Court includes mom's stellar boyfriend in the "family" therapy and the boys still have to deal with him. That sure sends out one heck of a message to the abused.

And that right there is what is wrong with society! Not that I condone the 'boyfriend' being involved in the dicipline at all!
