Access to this collection is generously supported by Arcadia funds. Attorney Ross F. Wilkins preparing to testify at a hearing concerning his fist fight with Deputy Sheriff J. A. Dixon during a jury selection session for the William Bonelli liquor license bribe trial. The fight started when Dixon told Wilkins he could not ride down in the elevator with the newly selected jury. Wilkins resisted and started punching Dixon when Dixon went to physically remove Wilkins from the elevator. Wilkins, who was uninvolved with the trial, claimed that he resisted because Dixon was in plain clothes and he didn't realize that he was an officer. Wilkins and Dixon appeared friendly during the hearing. Handwritten annotation from nitrate negative: Ross F. Wilkins Text from original nitrate sleeve: Wilkins, Ross F.; Dixon, J. A.
