January 1st Early Morning Law Enforcement & Fire Medical wrap up

Lawrence Police responded on a total of 21 disturbances between midnight and 5 a.m..

The first significant disturbance was on Burning Tree Court, north of Kingsmill Road at 12:20 a.m.. A caller reported nearly 50 people arguing and watching a fight in the area. 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. Medics eventually transported a male in his early 20's from that scene to LMH. The male was said to be missing several teeth as a result of the fight. No arrests have been recorded related to this incident.

At 1:08, Police were called to an address in the 1100 block of Kentucky following a report of an unconscious subject who had been the victim of a battery. Three LPD units went into the scene as Fire Medical crews were staging nearby. Officers did not find anyone unconscious at the scene. While checking near the address for the possibly injured person one officer was battered. That officer called for "emergency assistance" over the radio. A total of nine officers were then involved on the call. After the dust settled, five subjects were arrested. Two of those arrested now face charges of Battery on a Law Enforcement Officer. Others arrested face charges ranging from Disorderly Conduct and Obstruction of the Legal Process to Possession of Marijuana and paraphernalia. No injures were reported.

Just before 1:30 a.m., Police and Fire Medical crews were called to the 900 block of Emery Road for a single vehicle accident. Officers located the vehicle crashed into a guard rail with one person, said to possibly have a broken leg. Medics reported the injury to be minor. One person was transported by medics away from that scene with what were described as minor injuries. The Sheriff's Office booking logs show a male was arrested for Driving While Intoxicated, Driving While Suspended and an Open Container. It is unclear if that subject is the same person injured or if the injured person was a passenger in the vehicle.

About an hour later, at 2:22 a.m., Police were called to the Magic Lounge, formerly Taste Lounge, at 804 W. 24th Street for a large disturbance involving weapons. Several callers reported as many as 100 people standing outside of the building arguing and one man holding a gun. LPD's call log shows 18 units were involved on the call. Few other details were available. Around the same time, Police requested medics with an emergency response to the McDonalds in the 900 block of W. 23rd Street, it was unclear if the two incidents were related or not. No arrests were reported.

At 2:43 a.m., Police received a report of a several gunshots fired from a vehicle that was northbound on Iowa around 9th Street. The vehicle was described as a dark colored SUV with large rims. Police reportedly caught up with the vehicle a short distance away. Few other details were available. There were no reports any of injuries or arrests.
