The worse for drink, Mr. Mayes had pulled the whiskers of the police constable as he was being taken into custody. A quantity of hair was produced in court having been recovered after, it was claimed, the assault. However Inspector Sharp swore that Meale had not presented the whiskers to him as evidence, whereas Sergeant Kirk swore that he had. Constables Middleton and Waites gave differing accounts of the language used in the arrest.
The Bench agreed that constable Meales had acted with great forbearance and they strongly recommended him for promotion.

On Tuesday 23rd August 1870 John Mayes applied to the magistrates for a full licence. It was peremptorily refused since at some time previous the applicant had brutally assaulted a policeman and it was a wonder he had not been killed.

Full licence transferred from the RAILWAY STORES 01.04.1959.
