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.

December 17th Early Morning Law Enforcement & Fire Medical wrap up

For those who follow Operation 100 News on Twitter, you are probably already aware of this but, for everyone else. I recently changed my coverage hours to begin at midnight and end at 5 a.m.. More information on this change can be found here.

Law Enforcement in Douglas County was on high alert following two Topeka Police Officers being shot and killed in the line of duty last night. The suspect was involved in a six hour standoff with local, state and federal law enforcement in Topeka. The standoff came to an end after tactical teams fired tear gas into the structure and shots were exchanged. Medics transported the suspect away from the scene in very critical condition. More on this story can be found here from the Lawrence Journal-World.

Around 3 a.m., a Johnson County Sheriff's Deputy spotted a sport utility vehicle at a high rate of speed, driving into oncoming traffic on Kansas Highway 10. The SUV was first seen around De Soto, traveling westbound in the eastbound lanes. The Deputy tailed the vehicle from the correct side of the highway and reported speeds near 100 miles per hour. Douglas County Deputies attempted to throw spike strips in front of the suspects vehicle. The driver managed to avoid the spike strips and came to a stop on his own near milepost 10. Deputies from both agencies conducted a felony car stop and took the driver into custody. Eudora Township Fire and LDCFM medics were called to the scene for some minor lacerations that the subject had sustained in his arrest. Eudora Township canceled the medic unit after learning that the suspect was refusing treatment. The suspect was taken into custody by Johnson County Deputies.

Lawrence Officers responded on a report of suspicious activity in the 1000 block of W. 24th Street shortly after 4 a.m.. Officers contacted a woman in the area. That woman was eventually taken into custody for an outstanding warrant. She faces additional charges for Possession of Marijuana and Possession of Drug Paraphernalia.

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

Lawrence Police responded on a report of a disturbance with weapons in the 2500 block of Redbud Lane. A caller reported two people arguing. One of those people was said to be armed with a knife. At least four officers responded to the area and were unable to locate anyone in the area. Officers cleared from the call after about 20 minutes of searching through the area.

At 4:27, Police were called to investigate a Domestic Disturbance in the 2500 block of W 31st Street. The caller reported a female struck a male and then fled in a vehicle from the apartment complex. Law Enforcement caught up with the alleged suspect about 25 minutes later and she was arrested. The female faces a charge of Domestic Battery.

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