A 63-year-old Wichita man was arrested Saturday afternoon on suspicion of drunken driving after he ran over a female Kansas University student’s foot in the parking lot directly east of Memorial Stadium.
Capt. Schuyler Bailey, a KU police spokesman, said Casey Cox, 21, was taken to Lawrence Memorial Hospital. The driver, George Lawrence Sevick, was taken to the Douglas County Jail, posted $500 bond and was given notice to appear at 1 p.m. Nov. 2 in Lawrence Municipal Court on one count of operating a vehicle under the influence, according to jail records. The accident occurred at 3:05 p.m. after KU lost to Kansas State University in the Sunflower Showdown.
LMH spokeswoman Belinda Rehmer said Cox was treated and released from the hospital.
