Breach of the Peace at Conisborough

John Mohan and John Devlin, fillers, New Conisborough, were charged with having committed a breach of the peace at Conisbrough on Saturday, May 12.

PC Jenkinson stated that on the date named at 8:30 p.m., he was in Loversall Street, New Conisbrough, with PC Cousans, when he saw the two defendants fighting. The police separated them, ordered them to go home, and told them that they would be reported.

Devlin explained that Mohan was under the influence of drink, and that he had endeavoured to take him home, but Mohan, being in a quarrelsome mood, had set about him, with the consequence that he had been obliged to defend himself.

There were quite friendly now.

The Bench ordered each to pay costs 6/6.
