After arrest he struck Robson twice on the side of the face, and several times about the legs. He afterwards, got hold of a verandah post and hung on, and. shouted out that he would not go with the police. At the station, when Eather was charged with using obscene language, he remarked  Everyone seems to be against me, even my father and mother.
