Lawrence Official Fired After Arrest

A former state representative arrested for allegedly violating a restraining order has been fired from his job with the Lawrence Department of Public Works.

Santiago took over for a man who was fired while on leave to care for his dying wife.

A judge on Monday released Santiago on personal recognizance.
