A Reading from America’s Historic Newspapers
New Cumberland, Pennsylvania, Christmas Day, 1937
The press said that Charles Mobley had been drinking some whiskey during the day and he went berserk after drinking two glasses of beer. Mobley didn’t seem drunk to the patrons of Doc’s Place when he stopped in for a Christmas day nightcap, and he only had the two glasses of beer before he started shooting up the place. Was he drunker than he seemed? Or was he under the influence of something else?
