Riotious Outbreak at Aberavon. At Aberavon on Thursday, Patrick Foley, Charlotet-street, an Aberavon footballer, was summoned for fighting and assailing P.S. William Evans. Mr. Hunter defended. The officer said he saw defendant fighting with a man named "Radford. There was a large crowd. He separated them, and de- fendant butted him in the chest and ran away. Witness caught him and defendant struck him twice. Defendant, ran away a., second time. but witness caught' him again and was kicked. He struggled with defen- dant and the crowd for ten minutes, when assistance came. Defendant continued to re- sist, and was very violent- Mr. Hunter, in cross-examination, en deavoured to show that defendant attempted to stop a fight, and was attacked by the police. P.C. Jenkins corroborated his colleague, and said he had to draw his st-a-ff and threaten the crowd. Sarah Wilson saw defendant and Radford fighting, and heard the crowd crying out to the sergeant, "Don't choke the man." Mr. Hunter argued that the whole affair had arisen through defendant, who was a lifelong teetotaller, trying to act as peace- maker. Two men named Murphv and Rad- ford were going to fight, and defendant tried to dissuade Murphy. Radford struck him down, and defendant was defending him- self when the police appeared. The struggle wa.s caused by the sergeant catching defen- dant, by the throat and nearly choking him. It was a-lso alleged that the sergeant struck defendant's head against the wall. Defendant, John Donovan, and James Cokelin spoke to this effect- Defendant was fined 40s. and costs, and 10s. and costs for obstruction. Thomas Radford was summoned for fight- imr and was fined 40s. and costs or one month. John Donovan, for being drunk and as. saulting P.S. Evans, was also fined 40s. and certs. Minnie Jones, for aiding and abetting in the assault on Sugt. Evans, was dismissed.
