Douglas County prosecutors Monday filed several charges against a 20-year-old Lawrence man who was accused of injuring a Lawrence police officer Saturday morning during a traffic stop.

Prosecutors charged Louis G. Galloway Jr. with one count aggravated battery against an officer, which is a felony. They also filed misdemeanor counts of assault and battery on another officer, plus charges of driving on a suspended license, obstruction, theft and criminal damage to property.

Lawrence police said officers stopped Galloway about 5 a.m. in the 2100 block of West 26th Street, which led to an altercation between officers and the suspect. According to court and police records, the theft and criminal damage charges stem from an allegation Galloway damaged a cooler and stole 14 beer cases from Holiday Inn Lawrence, 200 McDonald Drive.

A judge Monday set Galloway’s bond at $75,000. Police said Saturday one officer was taken to Lawrence Memorial Hospital for treatment with injuries that were not life threatening, and Sgt. Matt Sarna, a police spokesman, said the officer was released on Sunday.

Its seems to me that Consumer 1 is justifying Oldenuf's position , at the same time criticizing it? I have seen this sort of behavior in family's before many times. I feel sorry for kids like this, but what can you do? He is only 20, maybe he will see the light. If not...he is doomed, as well as whomever he takes with him.

Same name, same family, same mentality, over and over and over again. I wish one of them would break free and make something decent of themselves and try to get the younger generation to follow...break the cycle.

First line of paragraph two contains a typo--should read," Prosecutors CHARGED."

"Galloway damaged a cooler and stole 14 beer cases from Holiday Inn Lawrence"...

Was there a party going on somewhere that was waiting for him to get back? Also, I wonder if he's being charged for underage possession of alcohol.

Forty years ago I went to school with some Galloways, some of whom were miscreants. Looks like a new generation of scofflaws. I guess the apple doesn't fall far from the tree.
