March 4th Early Morning Law Enforcement & Fire/Medical wrap up
At 2:02 a.m., Lawrence Police were called to a "large" disturbance in the 1100 block of Massachusetts Street. Emergency Dispatchers received reports of 10-15 people fighting and one of the involved subjects spraying others with mace. As one of the nearly 10 Officers arrived, he spotted a vehicle which was attempting to leave. The Officer stopped that vehicle, which turned out to be carrying the subject who was spraying mace. Other Officers broke up what remained of the fight and requested a Medic unit respond to rinse a subjects eyes due to the mace. No other injuries were reported.
As Medics were responding to the scene of Massachusetts Street, they passed another disturbance in the intersection of 17th and Kentucky Streets. Medics reported four males involved. Again, Officers responded and quickly had the situation under control. No injuries were reported at this scene.
The Kansas Highway Patrol reported making a DUI arrest in the 400 block of McDonald Drive at 2:05 a.m.. Lawrence Police made a similar arrest a short time later in the 1400 block of Connecticut Street.
LPD responded on a non-injury accident in the 1100 block of W 6th Street just after 2:30 a.m..
By 3 a.m., things had quieted down considerably. Police reported making several vehicle stops and citing parking violations.
