Not your ordinary Monday morning

Early Monday morning's are usually very quiet when it comes to significant police activity. Things weren't that way today with officers responding on three disturbances in less than an hour.

The first was reported to be several subjects being rowdy and possibly fighting at the Royal Crest Lanes, 933 Iowa Street, around 1:10 a.m.. Lawrence Police Department's call log show that a total of 12 units were eventually assigned to the call. Medics were also called to the scene to treat four people who had been exposed to OC (Oleoresin Capsicum) spray, otherwise known as pepper spray. A 19-year-old, Topeka man was arrested and faces a slew of charges including; battery on a law enforcement officer, possession of an others driver's license, assault on a law enforcement officer, obstruction of the legal process, two municipal failure to appear warrants and a Shawnee County failure to appear warrant. Booking records show that he is being held without bond by the order of the Topeka Police Department.

The next two disturbances both involved the same subject causing problems at the same address. Officers were first called to Playerz, 1910 Haskell Avenue, at 1:29 a.m., for two subjects fighting inside the business. When officers arrived the two men had separated and one was waiting for officers outside. Officers arrested one man for disorderly conduct and criminal trespassing. The police department's website shows that seven units were assigned to the call. Medics also responded and treated one subject, at the scene, for a bloody nose.

Officers were called back to the Haskell Avenue address at 2:03 a.m. after an employee reported that the second man involved in the earlier disturbance had returned and was knocking on the door and windows. This time nine units show to be assigned to the call and the man is arrested but, only after he decided that it would be a good idea to batter one of the officers. The man now faces charges of battery on a law enforcement officer, criminal trespassing and disorderly conduct.

At 2:08 a.m., Officers responded on a non-injury accident in the 1700 block of Tennessee Street. The male driver was arrested and now faces charges for OUI, no insurance and driving while suspended/revoked.

An officer on routine patrols also conducted a vehicle stop in the 1800 block of W 23rd Street. The driver was found to be intoxicated and was arrested. She now faces an OUI charge.

Law enforcement officers kept very busy early Saturday throughout Douglas County

Lawrence police conducted more than 10 vehicle stops between midnight and 5 a.m.. Those stops resulted in four arrests, three for OUI related offenses and one for driving without a valid driver's license.

Douglas County deputies recorded one DWI related arrest, the same arrested person also faces a charge for not having proof of liability insurance.

Other police activity in Lawrence included;

  • 11 Disturbances
  • 3 Trespassing complaints
  • 3 Noise complaints
  • 2 Non-injury accident
  • 1 Strong-arm robbery

Nearly all of the disturbance calls were between midnight and 2:30 a.m., only two disturbances were reported after that. Five of the disturbance calls occurred in downtown along Massachusetts Street. Two of the larger disturbances on Mass Street occurred about 10 minutes apart and less than half a block from each other. Both of the larger fights occurred in the 1000 block of Massachusetts Street. The first was outside of Buffalo Wild Wings and the second in front of the Granada, both were said to have involved 6-10 people. There was a report of one person involved possibly having suffered a broken nose however, it did not appear that officers made contact with anyone having such an injury. Medics were not requested to respond on any of the disturbances and no serious injuries were reported.

At 2:11 a.m., officers wrapping up their response on one disturbance were informed of a hit and run accident which had occurred about a block away in the 900 block of Massachusetts Street. A Chevrolet SUV was reported to have fled from the scene, there was no description of the driver. As of this report it does not appear that officers have made contact with that driver.

Just after the information was given on the hit and run, officers were being informed of a strong-arm robbery which had occurred in the 800 block of Massachusetts Street. The victim reported being approached and robbed by two men. The men were only described as a white male and a black male who were last seen running from the area, possibly to the west. The victim did not report any injuries. As of this report, no arrests have been recorded.

KU Police were called to the 600 block of Sunnyside Avenue around 2:20 a.m. after a caller reported a vehicle found crashed in the roadway. Officers arrived to report a red Honda CRV was laying on its side with no signs of a driver. Lawrence Police also responded to the scene. The driver was located and arrested about 30 minutes later. He faces charges for failure to report an accident, leaving the scene of an accident with damage to vehicle/property and no insurance.

Two of the trespassing calls this morning involved unknown subjects trying to enter Greek houses.

The first was reported about 2:30 a.m. and involved a man in a red coat who was knocking and possibly trying to open the front door of the Kappa Kappa Gamma house at 1 Gower Place. After no one answered the door, the man made his way to the rear of the house, before disappearing from sight towards the Chancellor's residence just to the west. KU Police checked the area of the Chancellor's residence and did not report locating anyone in the area.

The second trespassing complaint was at the Alpha Chi Omega house at 1500 Sigma Nu Place around 4:15 a.m.. This time the trespasser was said to be an unknown woman in a black skirt. Again the unknown person tried to open the front door before she made her way to the back of the building and tried a different door. Officers checked the area and did not report locating anyone matching the description in the area.

Lawrence police were in the area of the 2100 block of Ohio at 3:21 a.m., after a cab driver reported being battered by a fare. The suspect, only described as a male fled on foot in an unknown direction. The driver's injuries were did not sound serious, as medics were not requested.

At 3:28 a.m., a Mil-Spec security officer reported a possible structure fire at 2411 Louisiana Street, building E. The initial report was only of the odor of smoke in the building. After further investigation the security officer was informed that the resident of on apartment had burnt food that she was cooking. Still a full alarm response from Lawrence Fire was dispatched to check and confirm that the incident was only a failed attempt at cooking. Crews arrived on scene at 3:31 to report nothing showing from the three story apartment building. Two minutes later all units were allowed to return to service after one crew had confirmed the burnt food was the source of the smoke odor.

Douglas County deputies rolled up on a fight outside of the Outhouse in the 1800 block of N. 1500 Road, at 3:31 a.m.. Deputies reported several subjects fighting in front of the building. The scuffle was quickly broken up and no injuries or arrests were reported.

Five LPD units responded and reported numerous people standing around in the area. Officers called for Medics to respond to the scene for one subject with multiple injuries.
