HEAVY FINE FOR ASSAULT ON POLICE

Trevor Finbar Earley was fined £12 In the Hobart Police Court yesterday when he pleaded guilty to having been in charge of a bicycle while under the influence of liquor and with having assaulted Constable Ivan Bedelph.

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.

Insp Smith, who prosecuted, said Earley had a long record, but had not been in trouble since 1936.

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

Mr Brettingham-Moore, P.M., imposed a fine of £10, with 2/6 costs, on the charge of assault, and £2, with 2/6 costs, on the other charge.
