Constable Bedelph said he was on duty on the wharf at 11 pm on Thursday. He saw Earley fall off a bicycle he was riding, and arrested him. On the way to the police station Earley became abusive, and struck witness. Constable Martyn assisted in getting Earley to the charge room.

Earley said he had been given wine, and he had not much recollection of what had happened.
