Chester W. Brockman, 40, Lawrence, was charged Friday afternoon in Douglas County District Court with possession of cocaine and aggravated battery — both felonies — as well as a misdemeanor charge of criminal damage.
The charges stem from a domestic disturbance in the 1400 block of West 22nd Terrace early Friday morning, during which Brockman allegedly punched and used a knife to cut the victim’s hand, according to Lawrence Police Sgt. Trent McKinley. Brockman was located a few hours later in the 1700 block of West 24th Street, where officers also found a large quantity of they believed to be cocaine, McKinley said.
Brockman’s bond was set at $20,000.
