From the Sussex Advertiser, 19th April 1841


Tuesday, April 13 - Present, H Blackman and T Richardson, Esqrs -

Charles Carter was charged by police constable Yeoman with having resisted him in the execution of his duty, in endeavouring to quell a fight and disturbance at the races the previous day. Defendant was convicted, and sentenced to pay a penalty of 1s and 10s costs, in a week, or be imprisoned 7 days.

Leonard Page, shoemaker, of Glynde, was charged with an assault. He was, it appeared, charged to aid and assist the constable in securing the above defendant Carter, and helped him rather too much by applying not only restraint, but cuffs and kicks to the prisoner, who, however, did not press the charge, and Page was discharged.
