Man charged with battery, threat against girlfriend

January 4, 2012


Douglas County prosecutors have charged a 24-year-old Lawrence man with aggravated battery and making a criminal threat after a domestic incident Tuesday at a Lawrence apartment. Dustin A. Johnson appeared in court Wednesday afternoon, and a judge will set his bond at $5,000.

Lawrence police arrested Johnson on Tuesday afternoon after a 24-year-old woman alleged Johnson, her boyfriend, during an argument knocked her to the ground and grabbed her, said Sgt. Matt Sarna, a Lawrence police spokesman. The woman, who had minor physical injuries, got away from Johnson, left the apartment and called police, Sarna said.

Johnson is next scheduled to appear in court Monday.
