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


At 2:08 a.m., Lawrence Police were called to the intersection of W 6th Street and George Williams Way for a pick up truck stopped in the middle of the intersection. Officers arrived and found the driver was unresponsive. LDCFM responded and reported that the male driver was intoxicated. Medics did not transport the man from the scene. Officers followed a path of fluids, believed to have been left behind by the same truck before it came to a stop in the intersection. Police transported the man to LMH for treatment. As of this report, no other information is available on the incident.

A Lawrence Police Officer attempted to contact a man walking in the 2700 block of Harvard Road at about 3:45 a.m.. The man ran from the officer and was apprehended about two minutes later in a nearby backyard. It was not immediately clear why the man chose to run. He has been booked into the Douglas County Jail and faces a charge of Interference with the duties of an officer.

Officers responded on a non-injury accident shortly after 7 a.m. in the 2300 block of Alabama Street. That accident was said to have involved a Ford SUV and a tractor trailer.
