June 25, 1912: And here we have the battle of the inkwell in the trial of Clarence Darrow. Dist. Atty. John D. Fredericks loses his temper and tries to throw a four- or five-pound inkwell at defense attorney Horace Appel over “a succession of sneers and covert attacks.” Defense attorney Earl Rogers and bailiff Martin Aguirre prevent Fredericks from throwing the inkwell, with Rogers suffering a deep gash to the wrist.

It was followed by another outburst the next day by Rogers:
