March 3rd Early Morning Law Enforcement & Fire/Medical wrap up
This morning seemed fairly normal for an early Saturday morning in Douglas County. Numerous vehicle stops, noise complaints and disturbances.
One call that stood out this morning, and has resulted in previous structure fires, a caller in the 300 block of Elm Street reported a couch on fire about 15 feet from a structure. Lawrence Police arrived quickly and were able to extinguish the fire. LDCFM arrived a few minutes later and confirmed that the fire was out. The subject who reported the couch fire was unsure why it was on fire and seemed to believe it was possibly "suspicious."
Police also investigated a non injury accident in the 800 block of Michigan and reported a DUI related arrest in the 1800 block of Massachusetts.
As first reported Friday morning on the Operation 100 News Twitter and this blog, Lawrence Police were investigating an injury accident at 4th Street and McDonald Drive at 1:40 a.m.. The Journal-World reports the accident involved a motorcycle, two people were injured, one critically.
Also first reported in Friday morning's blog was the strong armed robbery of a man in the 1100 block of Massachusetts Street. The Journal-World reports the man was attacked by three men.
