A scuffle outside a Sherry
dance hall early this morning
resulted in the death of George
Richardson, 50, Sherry, a
deputy sheriff and dance hall
District Attorney Bunde said that
Richardson had taken [name] into
custody and escorted him from the
dance hall after the youth became
engaged in a violent argument with
Joe Lang, the proprietor, over the
latter's refusal to serve him a drink.
Outside the hall, Richardson told
Lang he would take the youth to the
county jail in Wisconsin Rapids...
Richardson had served as a dance
hall inspector for a number of years.
He was employed by the Wood
county highway department as a
road patrolman, and was president
of the Wood county local of the
State, County & Municipal Em-
ployes union (AFL).
