Bizarre domestic disturbance and a reported shooting in Douglas County Saturday morning

Douglas County Deputies and Lawrence Police were all kept pretty busy this morning.

Lawrence Police conducted around 30 vehicle stops, three bar checks and responded on four disturbances.

The only noteworthy disturbance in Lawrence reportedly involved 30 subjects pushing and shoving near 10th & Mass Streets. The incident was reported around 12:45 a.m., no injuries or arrests were reported. Most of the subjects had separated before LPD arrived.

Douglas County Deputies were called out on a rather odd domestic disturbance in southwestern Douglas County around 1:30 a.m.. Dispatchers received calls from a man that said his brother was trying to harm him. Dispatchers also received a call from the men's sister, who lives nearly 1,000 miles away, and wanted Deputies to check on her brothers who she said live together. Deputies arrived at the address just as one of the brothers drove his truck onto the roadway and immediately crashed in front of the patrol vehicles. It was unclear what the man hit with the truck, he did not report any injuries and was detained by Deputies. The second brother was located a short distance away and claimed to be the victim of a battery. The man that was apparently trying to flee from the address and wrecked his truck was arrested and now faces a domestic battery charge. No injuries were reported in the incident.

Deputies were called to the area of The Outhouse, 1800 block of N. 1500 Road, on a reports of a possible shooting. The caller reported three gunshots outside of the building. There was also mention of a bus being somehow involved in the incident. Deputies arrived to find a vehicle in the ditch in front of the address and a party bus driving away. Lawrence officers responded to help locate and stop the party bus, which was stopped a short time later. The bus reportedly had 30 people on board. It was unclear how the bus was involved or what caused the vehicle to end up in the ditch. No injuries or arrests were reported in the incident.

Lawrence Police and the Kansas Highway Patrol each recorded one arrest for DWI/OUI related offenses. The highway patrol also made an arrest for an outstanding warrant and another arrest for driving on a suspended license.

    Seven arrests on nearly 20 different charges this morning.

    As they are on most weekends, law enforcement officers in Douglas County were kept plenty busy this Saturday morning.

    Here are some of this morning's numbers;

    • 7 Total arrests
    • 6 Disturbances
    • 2 Attempts to flee from officers
    • 2 OUI/DWI related arrests
    • 2 Reports of gunshots (same area/time)
    • 1 Non-injury accident

    The first of which was reported just before 12:30 a.m. at Tonic Lounge, 728 Massachusetts Street. A caller reported a man had "pulled a knife on staff." Officers caught up with a man matching the description a short distance away, behind 722 Massachusetts Street. No injuries or arrests were reported related to this incident.

    Just after 1 a.m., Police were involved in a foot pursuit with a man in the 800 block of Vermont Street. Officers caught up with him in the 1000 block of Vermont Street. At the time, it was unclear why the man was running but, after he was booked it became clear. This morning the 19-year-old man faces charges including interference with the duties of an officer, public urination, possession of alcohol by a minor, and consumption/possession of liquor in public.

    Next, officers were off to the area of W 25th Street and Redbud Lane following two reports of gunshots heard in the area. Callers reported between two and five gunshots heard in the area around 1:45 a.m.. Five officers checked the area but, did not report locating anything in the area.

    Lawrence Police were called to a hit and run non-injury accident near 10th & Alabama at 2:21 a.m.. KU Police located the suspect vehicle abandoned on Alabama Street just north of Fambrough Drive. KU Police reported that LPD had located the driver a short time later. As of this report, no arrests have been recorded related to the activity.

    Just before 2:45 a.m., KU Police were called to Learned Hall, 1530 W. 15th Street, on a report of an alarm sounding. The officer located an "emergency shower" which had been activated. After shutting off the water and silencing the alarm, the officer reported a quarter inch of water on the floor. It was unclear if the water had done any damage to any rooms.

    At 2:59 a.m., Lawrence Police and Firefighters were called to the Phi Delta Theta Fraternity house on a reported structure fire. A caller had reported that there was smoke in both staircases. Officers arrived to find that there was no smoke, only an "accidental discharge" of a fire extinguisher. Firefighters arrived and quickly confirmed that there was no smoke or fire.

    At 4:38 a.m., six Lawrence Police units were assigned to a domestic disturbance call in the 1100 block of Stone Meadows Drive after one of the involved parties decided that he could outrun officers. Needless to say, he was proved wrong and was taken into custody a short distance away. He now faces a total of six charges, three related to outstanding warrants. The new charges are all related to the domestic and his decision to run from officers. Those charges include domestic battery, criminal restraint and obstruction of the legal process.

    August 5th Early Morning Law Enforcement & Fire/Medical wrap up

    Shortly after 2 a.m., Police received a report of two teenage males "14-17 years old" who were dressed in all black and acting suspicious behind a strip mall in the 1500 block of Wakarusa Drive. Officers arrived in the area and quickly spotted the two subjects not far away. Both subjects ran from the Officers, southbound on Carmel Drive. The officer reported losing sight of the subjects near the intersection of Carmel Drive and Carmel Court. As officers set up a perimeter to search for the subjects, one was approached by an employee of Brandon Woods, who informed officers that several residents reported people knocking on their windows around the same time. After a little more than an hour of searching, officers broke down the perimeter and returned to normal patrols.

    While the search was underway in Lawrence, officers in Baldwin City were on the lookout for a male who was seen breaking into at least one vehicle and using a flashlight to look into other vehicles, in a neighborhood on the east side of town. Officers were quickly able to locate the man and he was taken into custody. He has been booked into the Douglas County Jail on four counts of Burglary to a Vehicle, and is currently being held on a $10,000 bond.

    Lawrence Fire responded on a small grass fire in the 2000 block of Bluffs Drive at 3:45 a.m.. That fire was quickly extinguished.

    Douglas County Deputies recorded an arrest for Driving While Suspended on eastbound K-10 between Lawrence and Eudora.
