September 12th Overnight Law Enforcement & Fire/Medical wrap up


A fairly normal Monday morning for Law Enforcement in most of Douglas County.

Lawrence Police were called to respond on a fireworks complaints in the 700 block of New Hampshire just after midnight, numerous disturbances throughout the city and a non injury accident in the 1500 block of Wakarusa Drive at 1 a.m.

Baldwin City Police along with Sheriff Deputies dealt with a subject who was making suicidal comments and for about an hour refused to communicate with Law Enforcement in the early morning hours. LDCFM had a Medic unit standing by near the scene and Police called for a mobile command trailer to be brought to the scene. Eventually both of those were not needed, the command trailer, was still being prepared to respond when it was cancelled.

LPD and LDCFM responded to the 2400 block of Ousdahl Road at 4:40 a.m. for reports of a motorcycle accident. Emergency dispatchers advised responding units that the motorcycle was the only vehicle involved and had reportedly struck a tree. Medic's arrived and advised that there was a subject standing upright near the side of the road. No serious injuries were reported.

KDOT will also be starting a major project on K-10 today starting at the east city limits of Lawrence. More information.

The activity blogged here is only a sampling of some of the things that Douglas County Law Enforcement and Lawrence-Douglas County Fire & Medical respond on. To see a complete list of Lawrence Police activity, the department has that available on their website along with several easy to use maps that show approximate locations for Police activity.

The motorcycle that was reported was a moped and if the guy driving struck a tree it would have been the tree in my front yard. There were two police cars, one firetruck and one ambulance in front of my house around that time this morning and a guy doing a field sobriety test. from the little that I watched of it, I would not have passed him on the test!!! The ambulance and firetruck drove off a little while after they arrived

. In fact my next door neighbor drives a moped.... and its still on its side out on the lawn. Cant you get a DUI on a moped??
