The various charges included aggravated assault, criminal trespass, drug possession, battery, disorderly conduct, obstructing the legal process, and 10 cases of either driving while intoxicated or operating under the influence.

And it's not just NYE drunk drivers, There was a recent OUI arrest at 3:00 in the afternoon. Right about the time kids get out of school. There are guys that start drinking when they wake up, continue drinking into the afternoon sitting at a bar, and get in their truck and drive off around 3-5 pm. And then go do..... something? I can't imagine what you are supposed to do when you have been drinking all day.

I know one State Trooper who has been given formal discipline to stay out of Lawrence city limits because he was arresting too may drunks inside the city limits and was causing a backlog and overtime in the city courts. It will only get worse now.

LPD could arrest 100 people a weekend on DUI charges if they wanted.

This comes as shocking and provocative news.

Still less dangerous than texting while driving.

And a good time was had by only the few.

Wonder if LJW will do a poll today with the question, "Do you remember last night?".

Interesting that the impaired driving arrests were split gender-wise.

Like the pathetic POS who was driving on the sidewalk near Applebee's at 6th & Monterey. Darn good thing a responsible person wasn't walking on that portion of the sidewalk at that particular time.

And they likely all involved drugs, booze, and personal irresponsibility. Pathetic.
