Hunter Fined $100 David Benson, arrested last week after a complaint was signed by Bob Murray and Russell Crouch of Greenville, pleaded not gui,lty to a charge of assault in J, udge ,pellmey- er's cout and demanded a ju- ry trial. According to: Mryr/tnd Crouch, they were heading up the old pipeline road in Mur- ray's jeep, intedning to run survey lines for some tirber cutting on property owned by Murray behind the old Stand- art Mine: BensJn reportedly appeared sud,den,ly in the middle of the road, .44 in hand, and refused to let them pass -- claiming they were trespassing. The two men, having Httle choice, returned to town and reported the incident .to the au- thorites. Deputy (2haNes Lov- ett went to the scene, retieved Benson of the .44 and appre- duced to simple a.ault, but Benson pleaded nat gui'Ry and asked for trial by jury. He was released on $500 cash bail and .a new trial date set for later this month by Judge Spell- meyer. The old Standart Mine, now known as the Mt Gould Mine, is present,ly being operated un- der lease by Benson and part- ners. According to other reports in recent months, shots have been fired at hunters moving through the same general area. The equipment at the mine was "sugared" by unknown vandals this past spring.
