George Roach, employee at the Recreation Lunch, was fined $10 and ordered to pay hospital coasts of $4 when he appeared before Justice A. M. Vandersall this morning on charges of being drunk and disorderly.
Roach was arrested by Officers Walter Laidlaw and Coy Rankin at shortly before 3 o’clock this morning when residents at 422 S. Adams St., reported there was an intoxicated man on the porch who refused to leave. Police found Roach in a half frozen condition and took him to Beyer Hospital where he was given a heat treatment and first aid for cut and bruises on his face. He was unable to account for his battered appearance.
