Months later, still no charges after car drove into protest


October 2, 2020

LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) — The Douglas County district attorney's office is still deciding whether to file charges for two incidents earlier this year where vehicles drove into protests in Lawrence.

The Lawrence Journal-World reports that meanwhile, at least three defendants have been charged for similar allegations that weren't protest-related.

On May 31, video showed a woman accelerating an SUV into protesters during a march against police brutality. On June 29, another woman drove an SUV through protesters' makeshift barricades and into a crowd. No serious injuries were reported.

Dorothy Kliem, trial assistant for the Douglas County DA's office, said there were differences between the cases involving the protests and the other cases. She said the cases involving the protests remain under review and charging decisions are likely to be made soon.
