BOY HOUNDED BY POLICEMAN IS
FREED JUDGE CAUSTIC
Victims of a copper's petty malice,
according to his story, Percy Court,
22, 3424 N. 29th pL, spent two'nigh
in the Englewood police station and
a friend who tried to help him out
also took his turn at incarceration.
The copper drew a reprimand from
Judge Fry in court this morning when
the two lads were discharged.
Michael Styler, 2445 21st pi., a
friend of Percy's, said Officer L. Mc
Dough had told him Percy was a liar
and a thief and so crooked that the
cop couldn't get anything on him.
Percy decided to take the matter
up with the cop and on Jan. 25, in
front of a poolroom at 63d and Cen
tral Park av., Percy told the copper
his information was phoney and the
cop decided, according to the story,
that he would make a part of it true,
so he called the patrol wagon and
placed Percy under arrest.
Harry Rains, 3448 W. 66th, came
along in time to see Percy in the grip
of the law and Harry called that he
would come to the station and bail
Percy out later.
Not so. Officer McDough reached
out and grabbed Harry, and at the
Englewood station Harry was charg
ed with interfering with an officer in
the performance of his duty and
Percy with disorderly conduct
A continuance was granted on the
two cases until today, but on Jan. 27
Percy says Officer. McDough came
into a barber shop where he was and
with a smile of good fellowship asked
him outside to have a gab-f est Percy
went to again find himself under ar
rest on a disorderly conduct charge.
"There seems to be absolutely no
justification for these arrests," Judge
Fry said to McDough, in freeing the
two boys. "I consider it one of the
rottenest arrests I ever saw to bring
a boy into a police station and give
him a criminal record because he did
not agree with your opinion, of him.'
