Photograph caption dated September 23, 1963 reads, "An officer pulled a car over Sunday at Balboa Blvd. and Vanowen St. and prepared to arrest the driver on a drunk driving charge. Inside, the officer found Robert Norris, 25, 4809 Sepulveda Blvd., Van Nuys, at the wheel. Norris' probation on an earlier conviction was to end today, and he and several friends had been celebrating, officers said. In photo at left, officers informed him he was to be booked for drunk driving. Police said he told them, 'You'll have to shoot me to take me back,' and began to run away. It took four policemen, second photo to subdue him and lead him to a patrol car, third photo."; See images #00120524 through #00120528 for all photos in this series.
