Police: No One Tried To Run Down Lawrence Mayor

LAWRENCE (AP) – Lawrence police have determined that there is no evidence to support Mayor William Lantigua’s claim that someone tried to run him down in a car in front of city hall last month.

Chief John Romero said Tuesday no charges will be filed as a result of the March 30 incident and the case is closed.

The Eagle-Tribune says the investigation report was delivered to Lantigua’s office on Tuesday.

Lantigua did not respond to the newspaper’s requests for comment.

Lantigua told police two white men in a car were watching him and an aide and taking pictures. The car then sped away, nearly striking Lantigua. He reported the incident a day later.

Witnesses told police say they saw the car, but did not see it try to run down the mayor.

    Lantigua is a WACKO!!! That city was bed enough prior to him taking office. It is now in worse shape than ever. He has no clue.

    He DOES NOT deserve a 2nd term in office. Only lunatics would vote for him again.

    • Lantigua Hater

      lunatics or all the Spanish people that voted for him in the first place.

    Lawrence is dire need of great municipal leadership and it is clear that the current mayor is a complete incompetent who is in love with himself and the title he holds. No wonder there is now a petition drive to recall the mayor.

    When he is in the DR they introduce him as the Mayor of Boston, and he just smiles and doesn’t correct them.
