Douglas County prosecutors Thursday filed a misdemeanor battery charge against a 26-year-old Lawrence man who was accused of punching his roommate in the mouth during a fight Tuesday evening at their apartment in the 2400 block of Alabama Street.
Chad Kasey Kidd appeared in front of a judge Thursday afternoon on the charge. Sgt. Matt Sarna, a Lawrence police spokesman, said Kidd was arrested Thursday evening after his roommate, a 32-year-old Lawrence man, alleged Kidd injured him during an argument about living arrangements. The roommate was treated for an injury at Lawrence Memorial Hospital, Sarna said.
