Lawrence police arrested three people in East Lawrence late Wednesday on suspicion of multiple crimes including aggravated assault, drug and gun possession and battering an officer.

Christopher Coty Maier, 26, of Lawrence; Kenny A. McGee, 41, of Lawrence; and Chrystal M. White, 40, of Lawrence, were arrested in the 1900 block of East 19th Street and are still in jail.

According to Sgt. Trent McKinley, a Lawrence Police Department spokesman, police arrested Maier after he attempted to flee and battered an officer. He was booked into Douglas County Jail Wednesday on suspicion of battery of a law enforcement officer and obstruction. Maier is also being held on a Kansas Department of Corrections warrant for violating parole earlier this month. Maier was paroled in July after almost seven months in prison on a 2012 robbery conspiracy conviction in Douglas County.

McGee is in jail on a $75,000 bond and appeared in court on Friday. He is scheduled to return to court next week. On Friday, the Douglas County District Attorney’s Office charged McGee with aggravated assault. He is accused of threatening a man with a shotgun on Feb. 8. He is also charged with criminal carrying of a weapon, a violation alleged to have occurred on Feb. 9, and felony obstruction after allegedly resisting arrest on Wednesday.

White was arrested on suspicion of aggravated battery.

How come it is that every time I open the paper another convect is getting arrested for another serious crime, but out on the street after getting his hand slapped?

A Stabbing next door two weeks ago, and both the 'three strikes you're out' accused were on probation from felony convictions three months ago?

"every time I open the paper..."

Because articles about the many who don't get re-arrested don't sell papers. Many never return to crime, but that's not news.

Why you want to get in to trouble out on the streets? I mean really; out here you can get with a woman, in there well..........sometimes I think its as basic as that. About time to go hillbilly and head to the mountains..... Wow
