Manhattan, New York -1884 Alfred L. Dupont, a French speaking messenger, of 21 South 5th Avenue appeared in front of Justice Duffy at the Tombs Police Court to make a complaint against William Buggy. Dupont, through an interpreter, alleged that Buggy, “a rosy cheeked man who said he lived at 429 Washington St” tried to run down a lady he was in the company of when they were crossing St John’s lane at Laight Street. Dupont went on to say that he got between the woman and the horse and brought it to a halt. Buggy then supposedly got down from his cart, verbally abused Dupont and assaulted him, knocking his tooth out. Justice Duffy took the tooth and commented that it was a back tooth that looked like it had been drawn three or four days previously. The arresting policemen said he arrived at the scene immediately and DuPont was not bleeding. As a result Buggy was released without charge.
