A 25-year-old Lawrence man was charged in Douglas County District Court Friday with one count of criminal possession of a firearm and two counts of battery against a law enforcement officer.
Miguel Ayala was arrested Sept. 15 after a disturbance at Saint’s Bar, 2329 Iowa. Ayala was allegedly thrown out of the bar but continued to make threats. Police arrived and were battered by Ayala as they attempted to take him into custody, according to police. After police arrested him, they located a firearm in Ayala’s pocket. Ayala is free on a $25,000 bond.
