Another morning filled with disturbances, one reportedly involving a gun
Lawrence Police were kept plenty busy this morning with disturbances and other calls for service. Here is a look at some of the calls police responded on this morning.
- 16 Vehicle stops
- 14 Disturbances
- 4 Noise complaints
- 1 Trespassing complaint
The majority of the disturbances occurred around closing time, up and down Massachusetts Street. Medics were called to at least three of the disturbance scenes, only one person was transported to the hospital. That person was said to have lost consciousness after being involved in a fight, his injuries were said to be serious. As of this report, no arrests have been made.
At 3:45 a.m., Police were called to Magic Lounge, 804 W. 24th Street, on reports of a large disturbance. One caller reported approximately 30 men fighting at the address. The caller believed that one of the men was carrying and had possibly displayed a handgun during the fight. Initially three officers were dispatched on the call, a total of seven units were eventually committed to the call. Those officers did not report any injuries or arrests.
With all of the car stops reported, the county booking log shows only one arrest for DWI. That arrest was made by the Sheriff's Office around 4:30 a.m. at 6th and Stoneridge.
Deputies also made three arrests at the same vehicle stop on K-10 near Eudora. One of the subjects faces a misdemeanor possession of a controlled substance charge, the second subject faces a misdemeanor possession of a controlled substance charge and is accused of being a felon in possession of a firearm. The third subject faces a charge for possession of stolen property.
The booking log only shows one arrest for Lawrence Police. That came shortly after midnight involving a 20-year-old Lawrence man who faces charges for criminal damage to property, possession/use of a fake Driver's License, and possession of alcohol by a minor.
