August 8th Early Morning Law Enforcement & Fire/Medical wrap up


Lawrence Police conducted six vehicle stops this morning, one resulting in an OUI related arrest.

Shortly after 3 a.m., Westar began reporting power outages in west Lawrence. By 3:30 a.m., the estimated number of customers without electricity jumped from 350 to 1,889. It was unclear what caused the sudden spike in outages, all in the same general area of town. The number of outages held steady until around 5 a.m., when it went down to 956. Power was said to be restored by 5:30 a.m., to all customers in Douglas County.

Lawrence Police received information on trespassing at an apartment in the 2500 block of Redbud Lane. A resident reported an unknown man at the door who was trying to "get in." The resident reported that the man was possibly intoxicated. No arrests were reported related to the incident.

None of this morning's activity was reported to have involved any serious injuries.
