Alfred Poston of Pinenurst, Indict
ed by the last grand Jury for allegedly
threatening to commit an assault
with a deadly weapon, and who fail
ed to appear Tuesday morning at the
time his trial was set, appeared in
court this morning and was granted
ten days' time In which to pay into
the court Jury fees and other ex
penses entailed by his non-appearance.
Poston was allowed to go on his
own recognizance during the ten
days' Interim. -
An affidavit signed by Poston and
his daughter, Manilla Poston, sets
forth that Poston was unable to
reach this city until 5 o'clock last
evening owing to an auto accident
on the Greensprlngs highway, while
en route to court. The affidavits
state that the Poston car slid off an
embankment and failed to start un
til several hours of labor. The affi
davit states that the car Is old.
When Poston failed to appear
Tuesday morning the court ordered
the bond of 1500 forfeited.
The court -ordered that, pending
payment of the Jury fees the bonds
men would be reinstated as such,
but at the expiration of ten days,
if payment was made, they would
be released. Bondsman are listed as
Al Hopkins and Clarence Taylor, far
mers, and R. A. Miller, service, sta
tion operator of the Ashland dis
trict. No time was set for hearing of the
case. Poston, a well-known resident
of t.he Pinenurst district, was ac
cused of attempting to .hit a state
trooper on the head with the butt of
a gun when stopped for questioning
about game laws last September.
