September 16th Early Morning Law Enforcement & Fire/Medical wrap up


Law enforcement throughout Douglas County recorded five OUI/DWI related arrests.

Shortly after 3 a.m., Lawrence Police received a report from a Safe Ride supervisor regarding one of their drivers being battered. It was not immediately clear when the alleged incident occurred. The suspect, only described as a white male wearing a gray sweatshirt and blue jeans, was last seen on foot in the area of McCollum Hall. The driver reportedly told his supervisor that the suspect punched him in the head, no injuries were reported. KUPD also checked the area of McCollum Hall and did not report locating anyone matching the description.

Lawrence Police responded on numerous noise complaints, and conducted several vehicle stops.

At 4:19, Police were called to investigate a non-injury accident in the 1700 block of Tennessee Street. At least five officers were attached to the call at one point.

Officers investigated a burglary in the 1300 block of E 21st Terrace at 4:25 a.m.. The caller reported a neighbor was "breaking the door down." Just before officers began to arrive the caller told dispatchers that the subject was now inside the house and refusing to leave. No injuries were reported.

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

Hitting a Safe Ride driver is lower then low.

If it keeps up, Safe Ride may become Good Luck, You're On Your Own.
