Week of May 20, 1957
Deputy Sheriff Bruce Spickler, who arrested a South Carolina motorist for not having a registration card last week, is now waiting for the motorist to send the $5 he borrowed from the deputy for expenses home.
Deputy Spickler found the man sleeping in a car in the first block of Summit Avenue. The man had no registration card. A teletype message to South Carolina brought no reply. The man paid a $1.75 fine for not having a registration card, and Deputy Spickler impounded the car until word of proof of ownership arrives. In the meantime, he loaned the man $5 to help pay his expenses home.
