August 15th Early Morning Law Enforcement & Fire/Medical wrap up
Not a whole lot activity this morning, other that routine activity for when students have returned to Lawrence. Officers responded on at least four noise complaints.
At 3:57 a.m., Police were called to the area of W 22nd and Ousdahl for a subject who had a cab drive him home but, bailed out before he payed the fare. The cab driver called 911 and followed the man until Police could arrive. Officers caught up with the man about two blocks away, where he was taken into custody for Theft of Services.
At 4:45 a.m., Police were called to a reported disturbance with weapons in the 1600 block of E 21st Terrace. The caller reported that her ex-husband was outside of her house with a baseball bat. Officers arrived quickly and no arrests or injuries were reported.
None of this morning's activity was reported to have involved any serious injuries.
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.
