JACK JOHNSON IS FINED $5.

The New York Times
December 29, 1922


Violated Traffic Rules by Failing to Stop on Signal.

Jack Johnson, negro, 42 years old, former world's champion heavyweight pugilist, was fined $5 by Magistrate Norman J. Marsh, in the Traffic Court yesterday, for violating the traffic regulations by failing to stop on signal at Seventh Avenue and Fifty-first Street Dec. 6 last. Johnson explained that he had not intended disobeying the regulations, but that his ten-thousand-dollar automobile was a little hard to manage. He paid his fine.

Benjamin Kaufman, 22 years old, of 228 West 142d Street, and Louis Broser, 22 years old, of 210 Ross Street, Brooklyn, who, it is charged, raced their autos across Williamsburg Bridge to decide a bet as to who had the faster car, were arraigned for sentence before Magistrate W. Bruce Cobb in the Traffic Court. Each was fined $25 and had his license revoked for sixty days.
