Police arrested Michael Sprague Hardesty on suspicion of criminal damage and trespassing after officers were called to the 1100 block of Vermont Street about 3:45 a.m. to check on a person who was allegedly beating on vehicles and yelling near an apartment building, said Sgt. Trent McKinley, a Lawrence Police Department spokesman.
When officers arrived, they found a 1993 Ford Ranger with a broken window and a man unconscious inside. The man was intoxicated, McKinley said, could not tell officers why he was in the vehicle, and the owner of the vehicle did not know him. Hardesty was booked into Douglas County Jail and released on a $200 bond.
