This Date in History
August 6, 1922: When Policeman R. L. Jones, of the Eighth precinct, went to the home of Mrs. Julia Kidd, 56, of 224 1/2 Quincy place, to arrest her on a charge of disorderly conduct, he encountered dual opposition that for a moment almost baffled him. He had plenty to do when Mrs. Kidd resisted, he reported, but when her fox terrier dog executed a flank attack, the hard-pressed cop completed his task only by sheer heroism. Mrs. Kidd eventually was taken to the station, to be charged with disorderly conduct, assault and possession of an unlicensed dog. Jones went to Freemen’s hospital for treatment.
