Deputy Constables James McBride and Henry Connelly arrested?

I found this article while researching, and thought it was interesting.

“Deputy Constables James McBride and Henry Connelly were tried in the circuit court last week for assault. Their attorney astonished the court by pleading guilty if the injured party was produced. As he was no other than Cherokee Bill, the offer was not accepted. In endeavoring to arrest Cherokee Bill, upon his last visit to Fort Smith last spring the officers had to hit him several times over the head before he would extract his ivories from McBride’s thumb. The jury acquitted the officers.”

December 13, 1894, Indian Chieftain
