Lawrence man, 25, faces firearm charge after incident outside local bar

September 28, 2012


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.

I think when you post bond you only have to pay 10%, so it's really not that much.

Often times people use a bondsman, and a 10% fee is typical. So, he'd just need to come up with $2,500 if he used a bondsman, or something close to it.

There are an awful lot of American citizens named "Miguel" and/or "Ayala", so I'm curious as to why you think his name sounds foreign.

When he says "foreign," what he really means is non-Aryan.

He's a local Lawrence kid. Went to LHS.

Sept 15??? Want to bet he's back in South America by now? Here it is the 28th, why so long to make the paper?

I'm 99% sure he went to Lawrence High. I graduated in 2005 and he's my age, so again, I doubt he's "back in South America" or a foreigner. Get a clue, folks.

Did they check the long form of his birth certificate?

Aside from the fact that he was totally in the wrong assaulting an officer and having a gun in a bar ...this kid went to Lhs and graduated in 2005. Pull your racist/ignorant heads out of your a$$ and quit making assumptions.

You know, when I read a headline like that, and before I click the article, I correctly guess what bar it is, that's bad.

I'd be careful assuming this is the same Miguel Ayala. I checked into the article you posted and it said that Miguel Ayala fought at 201 pounds. I was in court for the first appearance, and this Miguel Ayala wasn't anywhere near 200 pounds. Maybe 5'4", 140 pounds.

No surprise. Saint's is full of trash. I made the mistake of going there once. I'm just glad it's out on Iowa so the trash doesn't make it down to Mass St. in the evenings.
