5 arrests this morning in Douglas County; 3 for DWI/OUI related offenses.
Here is a look at some of the calls that Lawrence Police responded on this morning.
- 5 Disturbance/Battery reports
- 4 Car stops
- 2 Noise complaints
- 1 Trespassing complaint
- 1 Indecent exposure complaint
- 1 Criminal damage report
Most of this morning's disturbances were on the smaller side, two or three people fighting/arguing. The one exception to this came at an address that Lawrence Police are beginning to become familiar with lately. They were called around 1:20 a.m. to an apartment in the 3300 block of W 8th Street, following reports of an argument that was possibly escalating into a fight. A total of six units were eventually attached to the call. Officers spoke to the involved parties and after checking everyone involved for warrants, returned to service from the call without making any arrests. No injuries were reported. This same address and apartment number have been the location for at least two previous calls, in recent memory during my listening hours.
Aside from the three DWI/OUI related arrests, there were two other arrests. The first involved a domestic disturbance with one of the involved now facing charges of domestic battery and violation of a protective order. The second arrest involved a theft in the 1300 block of Tennessee Street. That suspect now faces charges of theft and interference with the duties of an officer.
None of this morning's activity was reported to have involved any serious injuries.
