    • Let them send the wacko’s there. We need not to help AA. It is a pointless endevour. What needs to happen is for the rest of society to know to stay the heck away from there.

      I enjoy meetings of an alternative group. I don’t want these criminals in there….lol

      Let AA have them. I just want people not to drop their troubled teens there thinking they are going to get help. The rest of society needs to be aware of the very real dangers.

      • For sure people should not send their teens to AA or NA! But in the meantime I think the government should intervene and stop AA and NA from co-mingling minors with violent felons and pedophiles.

        The insanity of this practice needs to stop! Along with stopping forcing people to AA or NA. It is unconstitutional.

    Miami Heat player Greg Oden arrested in Lawrence
    INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — Online court documents indicate Miami Heat player Greg Oden faces one felony and two misdemeanor charges in Indianapolis.

    The case opened Monday indicates Oden was charged with battery resulting in serious bodily injury, a Level 5 felony under Indiana’s new criminal code. He was also charged with domestic battery and battery resulting in injury, both misdemeanors.

    Oden was arrested in Lawrence early Thursday morning, according to a police report.

    According to the report, officers responded to a disturbance in the 7200 block of Maple Bluff Place around 3:30 a.m. When police arrived they spoke with a female victim who was lying on a sofa with blood on her face. Police also spoke with a witness identified as the victim’s friend. She said, “he punched her in the face, my hand hurts and I just want to go home.”

    Oden said, “things got out of control and I started to go after the victim. My relative and witness tried to hold me back, but as I swung my arms to move them out of the way, then punched the victim in the face,” according to the police report. He went on to say, “I was wrong and I know what has to happen.”

    Court documents indicate the victim had major swelling on her face and her nose was fractured. She required a few stitches. The incident happened after a night out involving alcohol. One person involved told police Oden “sometimes gets upset when he drinks.”

    Police said in court documents that Oden “appeared calm, apologetic and cooperative. He told officers he took full responsibility for his action.”

    Oden won three state basketball titles playing for Lawrence North High School. After starring at Lawrence North with Mike Conley where the two won state titles from 2004 to 2006, Oden played one season alongside Conley at Ohio State before being drafted number one overall by the Portland Trailblazers. His NBA career has been marred by injuries.
