Dangerous And Suspicious

I found this little news item on AL.com under a section called Yesterdays News.

It’s news blurbs from The Mobile Press Register from years gone by.

Thursday, May 2, 1907

“Officer Lott Tuesday night arrested J.F. Wilds … who claimed to be a ventriloquist and was about to display his skill at the corner of Royal and Dauphin streets when stopped by being arrested. He was placed on the docket under the charge of dangerous and suspicious.

I’ll now have to remember this news item when I’m performing on Dauphin Street. I admit carrying a ventriloquist dummy looks suspicious…but I’m doubting the “dangerous” charge.
