Lawrence man, 53, injured in fight outside Jazzhaus, flown to KC hospital

April 24, 2012


A 53-year-old Lawrence man was flown to an area hospital Tuesday morning after he suffered injuries during a fight in the 900 block of Massachusetts Street.

Sgt. Trent McKinley, a Lawrence police spokesman, said that about 1:30 a.m., the man was removed from Jazzhaus, 926 1/2 Mass., after he started a disturbance with another man.

A fight then ensued on the sidewalk outside, and the man reportedly fell onto a concrete planter and suffered facial injuries and possible internal injuries, McKinley said.

There was also an allegation that one person pulled a knife during the incident, but police do not believe it contributed to the man’s injuries.

No arrests were made, pending further investigation, McKinley said.

This jazz music is killing our elderly just like rap music is killing our young

If you're not outraged, you're not paying attention.

53 and still getting into fights. Doing the townies proud.

not if he's a townie. He'd still see himself as a fresh grad from LHS, ready to conquer the local painting or drywall business just like he conquered Mass. The townie bars are chock full of these guys.

That is a ridiculous statement! The Jazzhaus just celebrated its 30th anniversary and they will continue celebrating many more years!

Jazzhaus has to be older than 30.

how is it possibly Jazzhouse's fault? Maybe we should appoint personal responsibility on this one and blame the two idiots that started the fight! But now that I think about it closing the Jazzhouse may stop all of Lawrence's problems. Next issue we need to get Jazzhosue behind Save the Wetlands! Idiots!

Well Well I don't think the Jazzhaus will be celebrating many more years. Want to step outside by the planter. If there is a fight and LPD shows up we can run for it. The cops should be tired from chasing the football players a couple of nights ago!!!
