Lawrence police Monday arrested a 35-year-old Lawrence man accused of striking a woman with a vehicle in the Holcom Park parking lot.
Douglas County prosecutors filed an aggravated battery charge against Michael C. Pringle.
Sgt. Matt Sarna, a police spokesman, said a 35-year-old Lawrence woman alleged Pringle, her estranged husband, knocked her to the ground with his car 6:30 p.m. Monday in a lot in the 2600 block of Lawrence Avenue. The woman said before the incident they were arguing about one of their children.
Sarna said the woman had minor arm and leg injuries but was not taken to the hospital. Police later found Pringle, interviewed him and arrested him on suspicion of aggravated battery.
A judge Tuesday afternoon set Pringle's bond at $5,000 cash or surety, and ordered him to have no contact with the woman or to return to her residence.
