Beer drinker is arrested in Evanston
Lake Shore News (Wilmette, Illinois), 29 May 1912, p. 4, column 2

Full Text

John Trogen, a Chicago teamster, found that it was expensive to drink beer on Evanston streets and then break the bottle on the pavement, as he was fined $5 and costs Thursday by Police Magistrate Boyer. Trogen was driving south on Sheridan avenue and on reaching Fountain Square emptied a bottle of cold beer. He threw the bottle on the brick pavement with enough force to break it. The broken glass was scattered on the pavement making it most dangerous for automobile and bicycle tires. Officer Paasch saw the incident and immediately arrested Trogen. The Chicago man pleaded that it was an accident but witnesses claimed otherwise and the offender was fined.
