Skilled at Checkers Convinces the court Autoist was Sober
No one can be intoxicated and beat Patrolman William LIPS,of Astoria Precinct, two games of checkers straight, so Hugh MACKAY is a free man today. MACKAY, an artist,of 47 West Eighth street,Manhattan, was before Magistrate Peter M.DALY,at Long Island City Court,on a charge of driving
while intoxicated. He was arrested by Patrolman LIPS on complaint of Fred CUPPER,of 100 West Thirty-fourth avenue,Crona, following a collision about a month ago between his and MACKAY'S automobilies. When CUPPER failed to appear in court,Magistrate DALY turned to the officer and asked; ''In your opinion was the defendant intoxicated?'' '' I don't think so'', answered LIPS.
''Why do you say that?'' asked the magistrate. ''We played checkers in the back room of the station house, while waiting for a patrol wagon,answered LIPS. ''He beat me two games straight''. ''Case dismissed'',said the Magistrate DALY. I am not related & have no other info.
