Aggravated battery charge filed against suspect in fight at Cadillac Ranch

January 24, 2012


Douglas County prosecutors filed an aggravated battery charge Monday against a 19-year-old Lawrence man accused of punching and injuring a 25-year-old man during a fight just before 1 a.m. Sunday at Cadillac Ranch, 2515 W. Sixth St. Kim Murphree, a Lawrence police spokeswoman, said a witness alleged the suspect, Michael S. Campbell, struck the victim in the face. The victim went to Lawrence Memorial Hospital by a personal vehicle, Murphree said, and officers arrested Campbell. A judge set bond at $15,000.

15,000 bond for a non-weapon barfight? Isn't Cadillac Ranch the LPD hangout?

Should have made it $150,000 or more. Maybe an extended stay in jail, even a few weeks will discourage this type of behavior.

The Ranch is 21 and over. Very easy to get in with a fake ID though. Saturday nights are "country nights".

If it were mutual combat I'd tend to agree. Not enough info in the artical to determine if the guy who went to the hospital wanted to fight or got sucker punched.

In California, where I lived for some time, I specifically recall two instances where there was a fight outside a bar. One guy got hit, fell, hit his head on the ground and died.
One guy dead and the other off to prison for years. Who won? Mutual combat may seem fine to children. Adults need to teach them it is not. And adults who think it is fine need to grow up.
