PETTY SESSIONS

A FELONY AT THE NEW INN

Monday, before the Rev. C. Chapman and Thomas Dunne Esq.

Thomas Castle, of Elham, appeared to a sentence for assaulting Sergeant Kay, K.C.C. at Elham, on the 31st May last. Some disturbance took place at the "New Inn," Elham, on that night, and the police were called in. Sergeant Kay seized a man there named Harry Castle, and was struggling with him in the passage to get him out of the door, when the defendants went behind him and knocked his cap off. The sergeant managed to get Castle out of the door, and the defendant then got behind him, and struck him twice with his feet, and ran away. Thomas Castle, a brother of Henry Castle, was charged with resisting the police in the execution of their duty, at the same time, and was fined 6s., and 9s. costs. - Henry Castle was also charged with assaulting at the same time, Mr. James Godden, landlord of the "New Inn." The defendant was fined 2s. 6d. and 10s. costs.
