Lawrence Police performed extensive bar checks in the early morning hours and responded on several alcohol complaints throughout the city. Several citations were issued however, no arrests were made.
Shortly after 2 a.m. Lawrence Police and Fire were sent to a report of an injury accident at Clinton Parkway and Kasold Drive. While responding, dispatchers were advised that one of the vehicles involved had left the scene. Police arrived in the area to find the vehicle that had been reported as leaving the scene and the other involved vehicle were both parked in the 2200 block of Kasold Drive, just north of Clinton Parkway. One person was treated by Medics for a laceration to the head. The laceration was considered serious and the patient was transported to the hospital by Medics.
Police again responded to the 1600 block of Haskell Avenue on a report of "things in the air." As usual, nothing was found when the officer arrived just before 5 a.m.
