Man accused of inappropriately touching woman, punching employee at The Hawk

Police early Thursday morning arrested a 20-year-old man who was accused of inappropriately touching a woman inside The Hawk, 1340 Ohio, and punching a bar staff member in the face, said Sgt. Matt Sarna, a police spokesman.

Sarna said about 1:30 a.m. a bar employee observed the suspect grab the woman, and while the man was being escorted outside he struck the employee on the side of the face. A Lawrence officer driving by the area observed bar staff members restraining the man on the ground and later arrested him.

The bar employee did not require medical attention, Sarna said. The suspect was not formally charged Thursday or Friday and was eventually released from custody, according to Douglas County Jail records, meaning prosecutors could still be reviewing it.

Yeah, this just sounds like a regular night at the Hawk, I'd think.

Had the Hawk staff been more careful in checking IDs, this 20 year-old would have never been allowed entry to cause trouble.
