Tires On Lawrence Mayor's SUV Punctured

Lawrence Mayor William Lantigua says someone involved in the effort to recall him may be responsible for puncturing three of the four tires on his SUV over the weekend.

But lawyer Anthony DiFruscia, who is helping the recall effort, dismisses that notion.

Police say an officer on routine patrol noticed the flat tires on the Chevrolet Avalanche at about 2:30 a.m. on Saturday.

No one was seen nearby and there are no suspects. Lantigua and Police Chief John Romero tell The Eagle-Tribune security cameras might have captured the vandal.

Lantigua says it will cost him $600 to $700 to replace the tires, money that he intended to use on Christmas presents for family.
