One Encounter With Scott Was
Enough for George Ricks.

George Ricks, who lives with his wife at 1824 McGee street, was arrested last November by Officer E. M. Scott. Ricks made a very vigorous resistance at the time and it was necessary for the police surgeon to take forty-two stitches in his head when the officer got through with him. Judge Harry Kyle fined Ricks $50 in police court the next morning for wife beating.

Last night neighbors complained that Ricks was beating his wife again, and Officers Scott and J. E. Wallace were sent to arrest him. When Ricks saw Scott coming he submitted to arrest without making trouble.
