Motel noise complaint turns into much more
Ever wonder what motel workers do to occupy their time in the middle of the night? I'm sure they stay busy - perhaps even worrying something unfortunate could happen.But this?Early this morning, a motel clerk was going to check out a room full of noisy guests when he got a rude surprise. He was punched in the face.It happened this morning at 4:03 a.m., at [Westminster Inn, 2525 W. Sixth Street].When the clerk asked three males in the room to quiet down, a 15-year-old in the room punched the guy, according to a Lawrence Police report.When police got there, the three guests ran away. Only the 15-year-old was caught. Police are still looking for the other men.I'd say that motel clerk definitely earned his pay last night. : http://maps.google.com/maps?ie=UTF-8&...
