Six Intoxicated Put in City Jail

The Daily Ypsilanti Press published this story on Monday, September 6, 1926.

     Officers have been making frequent trips to city jail principally with drunks since Saturday night, and now have seven men lodged there, one of whom is charged with stabbing a man, two with driving while drunk and the rest with drunkenness. Two of the men were too drunk to tell police their names.
     William Ducket, Jefferson Ave., is charged with having stabbed Arthur Robinson, 610 Jefferson Ave., several times in a fight Sunday night at 7 o’clock. Robinson was taken to Beyer Memorial hospital for treatment and was released shortly afterward.
     J. W. Hutchngs, 1221 Watson Street. Detroit, and David M. Keith, 449 First Street, Ann Arbor, are held on charges of driving while intoxicated and D. Ransburg are held for drunkenness.

     Chief of Police Connors stated that the men will be arraigned Tuesday in Justice Court.
