Douglas County prosecutors have filed a misdemeanor DUI charge related to a Jan. 5 traffic stop of a 32-year-old Lawrence woman, who was a Lawrence police officer at the time.
According to court records, Marie Angel Haynes was charged April 2 and has been served a summons to appear on May 16 in Douglas County District Court. She faces one count for a first-offense DUI related to the stop early on Jan. 5 when a Kansas Highway Patrol trooper arrested her near Sixth and Iowa streets.
Haynes had posted $250 bond after she was booked into jail and was originally given notice to appear in court Jan. 17, but Douglas County prosecutors waited for toxicology results before deciding to file charges.
City attorney Toni Wheeler said Tuesday that according to city employment records Haynes was no longer employed with the city as of Feb. 25. Wheeler declined further comment.
Haynes was hired in January 2011 as a Lawrence police officer after working as a Kansas University police officer, the department said at the time.
