A 22-year-old Lawrence man was arrested early Friday morning on suspicion of breaking into a vehicle and falling asleep in it.

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.

Needed a place to sleep it off? As far as sleeping in your car, there but for the Grace of God go I. A lot of folks have no other place. Sadly.

Why can't they name the apartment building?

Why do you need to know which apartment building it was? There are tons of apartments on Vermont in the 1100 block.

Why did they not report the name of the state, country, continent or world? Maybe because it has nothing to do with the story?

Okay, now that you put it that way, I guess it doesn't. I humbly accept your rebuke, because I know it was well meant. :-)

You know, I would still like to know details, did he break a window and then open a door? Did he climb though the window? Was there no car alarm? Or it that what alerted the owner of the car?
