CUMBERLANDER FINED AFTER "FREE-FOR-ALL"
Matthew Andrews, 35, of Cumberland was fined $17 and costs last night, by Magistrate Thomas E. Stakem. at Midland, on a charge of assaulting Michael Hughes, 52, and his son, Francis Hughes, 25, of Ocean, last Saturday at the home of Peter Bush, 83, in Ocean. Officers were told that Andrews went to the Bush home to see his daughter, who had been living there several years. An argument developed and Andrews is alleged to have knocked down Francis Hughes; pushed Mrs. Thomas Burkey, 60, of Cash Valley, and kicked her, breaking her leg, and then cutting Michael Hughes. Mrs. Burkey was attempting to protect her aged father, Peter Bush, she told officers. Andrews was released under $300 bond for a hearing later on a charge of assaulting Mrs. Burkey.
