Pulled Knife on Uncle is Charged
(Olympia Daily Recorder February 4, 1910)
Sam Deaton was brought into the county jail this afternoon from Rainier, charged with first degree assault of $500 bonds. He was arraigned before Justice of the Peace C. G. Morris and pleaded not guilty, and was ordered committed to the county jail.
Deaton and his uncle, a man named Arnold, were with some others in Tenino, and all of them were said to have been drunk. When they returned to Rainier an argument as started, and the younger man in claimed to have pulled out his pocket knife and started after his uncle, although no injury was inflicted. He was arrested, charged with assault in the first degree and Deputy Sheriff J. W. Hall of Yelm brought him in.
It is thought the charge will be changed to one of less importance as the man was not injured in the least.
