Fargo Stick-Up Man Picks Wrong Victim
Fargo, N.D., Feb 4.—Arthur Smith pushed part of a toy cannon into a Fargo policeman's stomach Sunday, ordered the officer to "stick 'em up."
Today, Smith is nursing a sore head in the police station for when the officer's hands went up there was a gun in them. Smith broke away, was caught, attempted to break away a second time and was whacked over the head with the officer's gun.
He tells a weird story, saying he thought the officer had a warrant for him because of trouble at home.
