Lawrence police officer arrested for DUI

February 16, 2012

A Lawrence police officer was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence by a Kansas Highway Patrol trooper on Jan. 5, District Attorney Charles Branson said Thursday.

Prosecutors are reviewing the case and waiting for test results before making a decision about charges, he said.

According to Douglas County Jail records, Marie Angel Haynes, 32, was booked into jail around 2:30 a.m. Jan. 5 after a trooper arrested her near Sixth and Iowa streets. She posted $250 bond after she was booked and was given notice to appear in court Jan. 17.

It is not uncommon for prosecutors to take additional time to await test results when reviewing DUI charges.

Haynes was hired in January 2011 as an officer after working as a Kansas University police officer, the department said at the time.

Police Chief Tarik Khatib said he could not comment on personnel matters when asked Thursday if he had suspended anyone relating to a January DUI arrest.

Marie Angel Haynes is now qualified for SRO. Well that might not be accurate since she didn't hit a pedestrian and drive him to LMH.

At the first of Khatib's grand entrance as chief he was asked on the JW about how he would handle the DUI problem with the LPD officers......that question did not get answered then.....now the answer is more public and points out the history of the LPD's on-going corruption.

Khatib is so endoctrinated into the police culture that matches the secreted under the table operation of the city commission that the problem needs to be addressed from beyond the control of the city.

You name any organized group of human beings (family, corporation, church, business, agency) and the more members it has and longer that group exists, the more likely it is that there will be some of its members who are going to do wrong. ...

enter FOP....blue wall of silence...blue wall of violence(DV)....institutionalized bribery...systemic abuse of authority.......perjury...vengence convictions...etc

Stop turning a blind eye and deaf ear which can/will lead to you as the next victim of illegal LE actions. Get rid of the double talk standards.

You name any organized group of human beings (family, corporation, church, business, agency) and the more members it has and longer that group exists, the more likely it is that there will be some of its members who are going to do wrong. And when they do, it doesn't mean the whole group is doing bad things, or that the whole group is bad to its core. Just means that no group of human beings ever was, is or will be perfect. So, unless you yourself are perfect and you belong to no groups/organizations (remember I included families), you might want to remember that a few bad apples does not necessarily mean the whole barrell has spoiled. Good to identify the bad and get it rooted out, sooner than later. And for those of you who hate all cops, may I suggest you sign up to take part in their citizen's academy? You might learn a few thing OR be in a position to help change the things you don't like about the way things are done. Anyone can anonymously gripe from the sidelines. But unless being a troll is your main goal, it is a lot more helpful to get involved and try to work for any changes you think need to be made!

I hope the department isn't suffering any loss of morale from these problems (KU tix scandal, this...). They should be proud that illegal behavior is called out and stopped, especially from within their department which must be hard to take. The transparency sets a tone for everyone. It's the way it should be. Way to go, Lawrence Police Department!

FHNC, clearly you brother's moral compass is compromised and his personal code of ethics are skewed. I believe the law is to be appiied uniiformly...even to those in uniforms.

My brother is a police officer in Washington State. He said he would never give a fellow officer, a doctor, a nurse, or any medical person a ticket.

He said he would never want to be in need of one that he ticketed first.

Evidently, the state Bull doesn't feel the same way or the city police women was too under the influence to identify herself properly.

What happened to LJWord's policy of not naming someone until they're convicted?.....must not matter if someone is a police officer....name them, then name all of the CHARGED child molesters in this town.

Bet an LPD officer would have helped her out. But the KHP don't mess around.

One would think, seeing firsthand, the number of these accidents, and the "blood and guts" involved, as well as seeing firsthand the aftermath of the lives shattered just might be a deterrent to doing things like this. Just... wow.

Used to be a KU police officer?

Back to the CCW issue on campus and those that claimed that with KU police crusing the campie grounds.... the need for students packing heat was ridiculous....

What was your "reasoning" for "scoffing" at CCW on campus again?

They have to wait for the results because breathalyzers have been known for giving false readings when Jack Daniels and Chocolate Cake doughnuts are combined!

So was her arrest before or after date of hire? Your story is unclear on this item.

The name of the officer was probably obtainable on the KHP report, where as the FBI and LKPD didn't release anything (yet) about the other two officers.

So why is the officer's name released and the other two aren't? They both seem to be "personnel matters"...

Was she given a BREATH TEST or FIELD SOBRIETY TEST? If A KHP officer arrested her what f!@#INg tests do they have to have before charges are filed.He didn't arrest her for kicks!! Why are normal citizen charged immediately but cops we have to "wait for test results? THIS IS RIDICULOUS!!
