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.

He was eventually taken into custody about 20 minutes after midnight.

    Around 12:15 a.m., Police responded on two non-injury accidents about the same time. The first was in the 900 block of Mississippi Street and the second was in the 1700 block of Kentucky Street.

    Douglas County Deputies were called to investigate a non-injury hit and run accident that occurred just north of Lawrence shortly after 12:30 a.m..

The person who called police reported that after crossing the river, the vehicle returned to the correct side of the road and then entered the turnpike, where the caller lost sight of the vehicle. Kansas Turnpike Authority Troopers were informed of the vehicle description and earlier offense. It did not sound like Troopers were able to locate that vehicle.

    Just before 1:40 a.m., police were called to investigate a disturbance near 11th and Massachusetts Streets. The caller reported that he had been thrown on the ground and then kicked. Medics treated the victim for some minor injuries at the scene. He was not transported by medics. It was unclear if the man knew his attacker or not. No arrests were reported.

    One of this morning's reported larger disturbances was reported near Fuzzy's Taco Shop at 1115 Massachusetts Street around 2:35 a.m.. The caller reported there were five subjects fighting and someone possibly injured. LPD arrived to find that the disturbance had broken up. Medics were also called to this scene but, were turned away by police who had learned that no one was reporting being injured.

    At 2:41 a.m., officers wrapping up the investigation of the earlier non-injury accident in the 2200 block of Louisiana Street reported a new accident at 23rd and Louisiana Streets. Officers moved the vehicles into the Walgreen's parking lot and requested Medics respond to the scene. Again, medics did not transport anyone from the scene.

Officers learned that the suspect had left the address and possibly had returned to his residence near W. 24th Street and Ousdahl Road.

    No serious injuries were reported with any of this morning's activity.

    11 disturbances and the second morning in a row with a strong-arm robbery

    This morning's numbers are just a little bit different from yesterday morning. Lawrence police conducted 10 vehicle stops between midnight and 5 a.m.. Only two DWI related arrests this morning, one from KUPD and one from LPD, and both of those also include charges for the driver refusing to be tested.

    Here is a look at some of the numbers from Lawrence Police this morning;

    • 11 Disturbances
    • 2 Noise complaints
    • 2 Non-injury accidents
    • 1 Trespassing complaint
    • 1 Strong-arm robbery

    At 12:20 this morning, Eudora Police and a Douglas County deputy were called to check for an erratic driver eastbound on K-10 approaching Eudora. A 911 caller was following the vehicle and reported the driver was all over the roadway and possibly left the roadway entirely at one point. The caller followed the vehicle to the Church Street exit and then north. Eudora Police caught up with the driver at the Kwik Shop. No arrests were recorded related to the incident.

    Just after 12:40 a.m., Lawrence police were called to an address in the 600 block of Michigan Street on a domestic disturbance. A man was eventually arrested and faces charges of criminal damage to property and escape from custody. While he was being transported to the County Jail apparently he was trying to open the door of the patrol car that was transporting him. It was not clear if he slipped his cuffs completely, was able to get his hand in front of him or what exactly prompted the escape charge. The officer driving the car did call for assistance at K-10 and Franklin, about a block from the jail for help detaining the subject again.

    At 1:15 a.m., Police were called to an address in the 2400 block of Ousdahl Road for a possible burglary in progress. The resident reported an unknown male in his 20's opened the front screen door of the home and then tried to open the main door. After finding the front door was locked, the man then made his way to the resident's vehicle parked nearby and tried to open the doors. Police arrived and the man was arrested for criminal trespassing and an outstanding warrant for failure to appear in municipal court.

    Officers were called to the intersection of 9th and Massachusetts Street at 2:45 a.m. following reports of a fight in progress, and one subject with a bloody nose. Medics were also dispatched to stage in the area. After breaking up the fight, medics treated one person for what were described as minor injuries.

    A Mil-Spec security officer called Lawrence Police at 2:50 a.m., to the 1000 block of W 23rd Street after witnessing a non-injury accident. Apparently Mil-Spec told dispatchers that they were detaining the driver after she attempted to flee from the scene of a collision with a parked vehicle. LPD arrived and eventually arrested the driver. She now faces charges her second DWI, in addition to refusing a test and no proof of liability insurance.

    At 4:55 a.m., Lawrence Police were called to the Dillon's at 1015 W. 23rd Street following the strong-arm theft of nine cartons of cigarettes. The suspect, described as a heavy set black female, reportedly shoved an employee to get to the cigarettes and then fled in a red Buick passenger car. According to scanner traffic, it appeared that officers have had similar incidents with a suspect vehicle matching this description. It was unclear if the actual suspect description matched or just the vehicle.

    November 22nd Early Morning Law Enforcement & Fire Medical wrap up

    At 11:30 p.m., a Lawrence Police Officer attempted to stop a vehicle which was traveling westbound on Clinton Parkway. The vehicle failed to yield to the officer, who then gave chase. Officers reported the suspect vehicle was westbound on Clinton Parkway at nearly 70 miles per hour. The chase then turned southbound on Wakarusa, and then westbound on Stoneback Drive, ending in a cul-de-sac. The male driver ran from the vehicle through a backyard in the 4900 block of Stoneback Drive and then into a wooded area between Clinton Parkway and the South Lawrence Trafficway (K-10 bypass). Officers set up a perimeter in the area to search for the man, who officers had already identified. The suspect was said to have a warrant for his arrest. Officers eventually caught up with the man, who now faces a number of additional charges. In addition to the outstanding Municipal Warrant, new charges include; Possession of a Controlled Substance, Attempting to Elude a Police Officer, Criminal Carrying of a Weapon (concealed), and Criminal Disposal of Explosives. No injuries were reported and no other details were immediately available.

    Around 3 a.m., the Kansas Highway Patrol made an arrest, near milemarker 199 on westbound Interstate 70. That driver now faces charges including; Driving While Suspended, Driving While Intoxicated, Refusal of Test, and Open Container.

    At 3:59, Lawrence Police were called to the 1600 block of Haskell Avenue on a reported burglary. The caller reported that someone had entered the residence through a back window or door, stolen a computer, and then fled out of the same rear door or window. The resident reported the incident occurred approximately five minutes before Police were called. As no one saw the burglar, there was no description available.

    At 4:01, a resident in the 2300 block of Murphy Drive reported two juveniles who were "acting suspicious" in the hallway of an apartment building. Officers responded and eventually sent the two on their way.

    At 4:02, Officers were called to the 700 block of Michigan on a report of three gunshots heard in the area. The caller believed the shots had come from east of Michigan Street. Four officers responded and checked the area. It was unclear if officers located anyone in the area.

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