Woman tries to evade police trying to make traffic stop

Lawrence police arrested a 27-year-old Lawrence woman about 1 a.m. Thursday on Kansas Highway 10 after she fled from an attempted traffic stop near 23rd Street and Haskell Avenue.


Sgt. Trent McKinley, a police spokesman, said the driver failed to yield to an officer and continued driving east, stopping east of 1650 Road outside Lawrence. She was booked into jail on charges of reckless driving, DUI, fleeing or attempting to elude police and misdemeanor battery on a law enforcement officer.

“Once arrested the driver became combative and resisted the officer and jail personnel,” he said. “The driver spat on the officer and jail personnel.”

According to court records, Douglas County prosecutors Thursday charged the woman, Jamie L. Eisenbarger, with DUI, misdemeanor battery on a law enforcement officer, fleeing or attempting to elude police and speeding.

In other incidents overnight, Lawrence police were notified at 12:10 a.m. about a report of a strong-armed robbery at a parking lot of an apartment complex near Sixth and Michigan streets, McKinley said. The victim alleged three people she knew took her property, and McKinley said the incident was still under investigation after officers spoke with two witnesses and attempted to locate the suspects.

Police also conducted a traffic stop after receiving a call at 1:48 a.m. about a vehicle driving the wrong way on Tennessee Street, which is a one-way southbound street. Police issued several citations to the driver after the stop, McKinley said.

Officers also about 2:50 a.m. took a man suspected of hallucinating due to inhaling bath salts into custody without incident in the 2100 block of West 26th Street. McKinley said a witness called officers and reported the man was wearing only a tank top and making suicidal and homicidal comments.

Lawrence Douglas County Fire Medical workers took the man to Lawrence Memorial Hospital.

man Jack, what's your deal with women? Yes I'm making that the assumption, simply because you've noted it several times before. You a fundie or just a knuckle dragger?

I hope someone is keeping an eye on toe. He sounds like he could throw himself off a cliff at any second.

Bet she only had tickets to see the Ichabods and the cop at a minimum wanted Women's KU b-ball tics

The FL bath salt man was found to have had only pot in his system. Pot makes people eat people's faces. Make pot illegal.

Can I have some medicinal bath salts, please...
