Pages of History: Bootlegger escapes the county jail

From the pages of the Crescent City American, February 1927.

Walter Parish, old offender of the liquor laws, was taken into custody Saturday afternoon by Chief of Police O’Leary, when he was raising a disturbance in Spann’s barber shop on Second Street.

Arrested on a charge of drunk and disorderly, Parish was taken to the city jail, but when Mr. O’Leary stopped his car to take him into the jail, Parish took to his heels and caused a merry chase from four officers before he was finally captured near the Plazs, when he ran into Mr. Enright, who was coming through a path and Parish thought he was an officer and gave up.
