Lawrence man arrested, charged after reportedly pointing gun in road rage incident

Story updated at 5:42 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 21:

A Lawrence man was arrested Tuesday evening after reportedly pointing a gun at a motorist on Sixth Street earlier the same day, and he now faces two felony charges.

“The alleged victim indicated that a male subject pointed a handgun in their direction” while traveling on West Sixth Street near Wisconsin Street around 5:20 p.m. Tuesday, department spokesman Patrick Compton said in an email to media. He said a second 911 call corroborated that.

The alleged suspect refused to speak to officers when they located him later in a residence in the 2000 block of West Sixth Street, Compton said. Police entered the residence after obtaining a warrant and took a man and a woman into custody.

According to the Douglas County Jail booking log, a 27-year-old man and a 22-year-old woman were arrested at 2001 W. Sixth St. Tuesday. That address is in the Highpointe Apartments complex near Iowa and Sixth streets.

The booking log shows that the woman was arrested on suspicion of aiding and abetting a crime and was later released on $1,000 surety bond. Her next court appearance is set for Sept. 4, according to Cheryl Wright Kunard, assistant to the Douglas County district attorney.

The man, Chandler A. Grey, was charged Wednesday in Douglas County District Court with two felonies: aggravated assault and interference with law enforcement.

The judge set Grey’s bond at $6,000, and he was released on his own recognizance to appear in court next on Aug. 27, the booking log indicates. Online court records show that the judge appointed Hatem Chahine to represent Grey. Grey is to have no contact with his co-defendant, the alleged victim or any witnesses, the records say.

The Journal-World has requested Grey’s mugshot from the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office but did not immediately receive a response Wednesday as to whether it would be released.
