October 14th Overnight Law Enforcement & Fire/Medical wrap up


Lawrence Police cited at least eight alcohol violations after midnight in town. Officers conducted numerous vehicle stops, administered several field sobriety tests and responded on multiple noise complaints.

A LPD officer checking a reported disturbance in the 2300 block of Iowa Street called for an ambulance for a subject with a laceration to the foot. That person's injuries were described as minor. It was unclear what caused the laceration.

At 2:41 a.m. Officers were called to the 900 block of W 24th Street on reports of a vehicle crashed into a residence. The caller told Emergency Dispatchers, "there is a car in my kitchen." One report indicated that the male driver was possibly standing in the kitchen of the residence. Officers responded to investigate and confirmed that a vehicle had crashed into the residence. The Fire Department was called to respond and stood by while a town truck removed the vehicle from the side of the residence. No injuries were reported.

Officers responded on another non injury accident in the 3000 block of Iowa just after 3 a.m.
