Hoover testified that Hearst's man
then assaulted her, hitting her in
the face and knocking her down.

Barrato and jumped into the Amer

speeding away. But the arrest was
not made until Mrs. Album swore out
the warrant.
Judge Dolan discharged Barrato.
"If he had not been a newspaper
driver you would not have discharged
him," said Att'y Pense when Judge
Dolan found Barreto not guilty.
Judge Dolan said: "Apologize to
me or pay $50 fine for contempt of
court"
