A 46-year-old Lawrence woman was arrested Friday afternoon following a road-rage incident on 31st Street.
According to Lawrence Police Sgt. Randy Roberts, the incident took place about 3:45 p.m. The suspect was driving a Ford pickup truck and was behind a vehicle going slower. The woman in the truck drove alongside the other vehicle before again getting behind it.
After a short drive eastbound on 31st Street, the two vehicles came to a stop near the intersection of 31st and Louisiana. The suspect then proceeded to drive into the victim’s car in front of her, pushing the other vehicle into the intersection, police said.
The suspect then left the scene heading north on Louisiana Street. She was stopped by officers in the 2700 block and arrested. The woman was booked into the Douglas County Jail on charges of aggravated battery, driving while suspended and no proof of insurance.
No one was injured during the incident.
