Gehrt, Ed. (charged with mayhem - 16 MAR 1915)

Tuesday morning Ed. Gehrt was arraigned before Court Commissioner Kountz and given a hearing. He was bound over to the circuit court charged with mayhem and is now out on $1000 bail. Saturday evening Gehrt and Fred Christie became engaged in an altercation in a Neillsville saloon, and got into a fight. It is charged that Gehrt bit a portion of Christie’s left ear off and the charge of mayhem is the result. The charge is a very serious one.
