Lawrence man given 6-month probation term for altercation at KU’s Summerfield Hall

October 14, 2011


A Douglas County judge Friday ordered a 49-year-old Lawrence man to serve six months on probation for a June altercation on the Kansas University campus with two KU police officers.

District Judge Sally Pokorny ordered Troy John Frank to serve six months in jail if he’s found to violate terms of his probation.

Frank pleaded no contest to two counts of battery on a law enforcement officer in August.

Douglas County prosecutors accused Frank on June 27 for refusing to leave Summerfield Hall, KU’s School of Business.

During the altercation, the officers eventually used pepper spray to subdue Frank, and one of the officers suffered a minor injury from the pepper spray.

Maybe if he'd whooped on a citizen...the police are supposed to take it. The city and county courts seem to believe that law enforcement officers are paid to get punched, slapped, stabbed, pushed, spat upon, hurled objects at, and verbally abused. In 32 years it's "always been that way". Stand tall, brothers and keep fighting the good fight.
