Fred Blair Denies Driving When Drunk.
Fred Blair of Rutland pleaded not guilty in City court yesterday to the charge of driving an automobile
while intoxicated. Because of failure to furnish $500 bail, fixed by Judge Clayton H.Kinney, he was committed
to the County Jail.
Blair's arrest by State Automobile Inspector Ray E. Smith, followed an accident at Pine and State streets late Tuesday
evening, when a machine, operated by him crashed through the cellar wall of a house on the southwest corner of the street.
State Attorney Lawrence C. Jones appeared for the prosecution.
