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.

No, Gart, it is just him. Not his first rodeo and probably not his last - unless they actually sentence him to some time this go-around. But, he hasn't learned yet.....

If he hasn't learned by age 40, it's unlikely he'll learn anytime soon. We can either remove him from society for a long time or we can tolerate this type of behavior and accept the consequences of such.

Danny Kortchmar: "Blood on the highway."

Jackson: "Gotta take either more of it or less of it. I can't quite figure out which one."

David Lindley: ""Well, I'll tell you what it does take. It takes a clear mind. That's what it takes."

Jackson:"You mean it takes a clear mind to take it, or a clear mind not to take it?"

David Lindley: "It takes a clear mind to make it."

This is why Lawrence's unemployment is going up! Stop arresting the workers, go after all of the non-workers. Dude was slinging yoke, that aint no easy payday and it aint cheap. The 1% needs to have their fun and if you take away their fun, then the middle and poor classes will have carry their load
