Leaping on Machine Disregarding Traffic Rules, Policeman Arrests Couple.

Leaping to the running board of a speeding automobile at Fifth and G streets northwest, early yesterday morning, Policeman J.F. Dwney, of the Sixth precinct station, brought the machine to a stop, arrested two occupants and seized the machine and a quantity of cocaine. He placed five charges against the driver.

The auto occupants gave their names as Foncille Bonner, 21 years old, 1233 Six-and-one-half street northwest, and Dasie Hatten, 21 years old, 352 Dixon court southwest, both colored.

Bonner was charged with violating the Harrison narcotic act, speeding past a crossing, passing a signal, having no operator's permit and having dead license tags on the machine. The woman was charged with violating the Harrison narcotic act.

Policeman Downey was standing near the intersection when the machine speeded toward him, narrowly avoiding a collision with another automobile. His signal to the driver being disregarded, the policeman made a leap to the running board and overpowered the driver, bringing the machine to the curb. Police found the cocaine hidden in a side pocket of the automobile.
