Douglas County prosecutors on Wednesday filed an aggravated assault charge against a 33-year-old Topeka man who is accused of striking a 47-year-old Lawrence man with a vehicle Tuesday morning in the 700 block of West Sixth Street.
A judge set bond for Jason D. Eagles at $25,000 cash or surety on Wednesday.
Sgt. Matt Sarna, a Lawrence police spokesman, said the two men were in an alleged verbal altercation around 10 a.m. Tuesday when Eagles attempted to drive off in his vehicle. The Lawrence man said Eagles grabbed his arm through the door window before driving away, but the man pulled his arm away. The Lawrence man also alleged Eagles tried to back into him with the vehicle.
Officers later arrested Eagles in the 500 block of Louisiana Street.
