Police did respond on a few calls, nothing very newsworthy however. Just after 10:30 p.m. a woman called Police to the 3300 block of Glacier Drive. The woman said her pet rabbit had broken loose and made its way into her neighbors backyard. She did not want to wake the neighbors to retrieve the rabbit and did not want to chance spooking the neighbors if they were to see her in their backyard. So, she called Police. The rabbit was retrieved and as far as I could tell the neighbors had no idea any of this happened.

A fairly normal weekend in Lawrence came to an end last night. In case you missed it, Police were kept busy with lots of activity on Saturday morning.. Gunshots, Fireworks, Marijuana and a Flaming Toilet. As I shared Sunday morning, my current scanner setup records audio to my computer, went through the archive Saturday afternoon and found the audio on the report of the toilet that had been on fire.

The strange call of the night goes to the one that occurred just after 12:40 a.m. in the 2100 Block of Rhode Island Street. Officers were called to take information about a theft of property. Police responded and contacted the caller who then focused the officer's attention to a complaint on a neighbor's barking dog. The caller did not want to sign a complaint about the dog, only wanted officers to be aware of the issue with the neighbor's dog. The caller then finally got around to discussing the theft that they had originally called Police to report. It was unclear to me what if anything was actually taken. The call went from a reported theft, to an animal complaint, to a request to speak with officers and then back to a theft. The officer on scene did take a report number in relation to the reported theft.
Just before 4:30 a.m. KU Police were called to McCollum hall after receiving a report of a subject on the outside ledge on the south side of the west wing.

KU Police advised their dispatcher that the subject was making suicidal comments and a Lawrence Medical unit was dispatched to standby in the area.

A caller reported a female ran into the path of a passing vehicle on 14th Street, forcing that vehicle to stop. The female proceeded to "flash" the occupants of the vehicle, then that same female started throwing beer cans at the stopped vehicle. LPD responded and was unable to locate the female subject.

Just before 2 a.m. Lawrence Officers were called to the 1200 Block of Oread Avenue on a report of a large physical disturbance. The caller reported at least 30 subject fighting with staff.

That subject was found to have a warrant for his arrest out of another Kansas county and he was taken into custody.
LPD also was called to the same address twice for a loud party in the 1100 Block of west 11th Street. It was unclear if both calls originated from the same calling party or different callers. Police did respond twice and apparently the second time was the charm.
Lawrence Fire responded to an automatic fire alarm on the KU Campus at Jayhawker Towers, Tower D. Did not hear what they were cooking this morning but it is the exact same room number that was trying to cook a pizza last weekend which also set off the fire alarm and resulted in the entire building being evacuated because of smoke. No injuries were reported and it was unclear if crews evacuated the entire building or not.
Another warm and windy day ahead for Douglas County. The National Weather Service in Topeka has placed much of Kansas under a Red Flag Warning. All burning should be avoided as conditions are right for rapidly spreading and difficult to control fires.
Lawrence and KU Police both had a busy night on their hands tonight. I started listening just after 9 p.m. At that time is was the normal for Lawrence, early on a Friday night. That changed drastically after midnight.
Just before 12:45 this morning Lawrence Police received a call of a disturbance in the 2900 Block of Missouri Street. The call started like most disturbances, as a report of a male and a female in the street yelling at each other. Seconds after Officers went responding to the call, dispatchers received a call from another party that said the male involved in the disturbance had gone into a residence, retrieved a shotgun and proceeded to point it in the direction of several bystanders. Dispatchers updated responding Officers of the situation and ended up with seven patrol units responding on the call. The man went back into the residence prior to Police arriving. Police attempted to make phone contact with the man and he did not answer the phone. No injuries were reported and no arrests were made as Police are still waiting to interview the man about the incident. As of this morning just before 6:30 a.m. at least 3 Officers are back at the address trying to contact the male subject involved. Armed Disturbance LJWorld Story for Updates

KU Police were busy as well. 1:15 a.m. they received a report that two females, both dressed in black clothing had knocked over the Jayhawk in front of the Kansas Union. While interviewing the calling party a second KU Officer spotted two females matching the descriptions given by the caller. That officer made contact and after a little questioning they stated that one of them climbed onto the Jayhawk for a picture and it suddenly fell over. We aren't done with this one yet. While Officers were talking to these females, dispatchers received a call about three male subjects that were carrying the Jayhawk away. Those men left in different directions prior to Police arriving, leaving the Jayhawk not far from the Union. Officers recovered the Jayhawk and transported him to the Public Safety office.
