James Earl Ray, suspect in the death of Martin Luther King, Jr.
is arrested.

James Earl Ray, an escaped American convict, is arrested in London,
England, and charged with the
assassination of African American civil
rights leader
Martin Luther King, Jr.

On April 4, 1968, in Memphis, King was fatally wounded by a sniper’s
bullet while standing on the balcony outside his second-story room at
the Motel Lorraine. That evening, a Remington .30-06 hunting rifle was
found on the sidewalk beside a rooming house one block from the
Lorraine Motel. During the next several weeks, the rifle, eyewitness
reports, and fingerprints on the weapon all implicated a single suspect:
escaped convict James Earl Ray. A two-bit criminal, Ray escaped a
Missouri prison in April 1967 while serving a sentence for a holdup. In
May 1968, a massive manhunt for Ray began. The
FBI eventually
determined that he had obtained a Canadian passport under a false
identity, which at the time was relatively easy.

On February 7, 1964, Pan Am Yankee Clipper flight 101 from London
Heathrow landed at New York’s Kennedy Airport—and
“Beatlemania”
arrives. It was the first visit to the United States by the Beatles, a
British rock-and-roll quartet that had just scored its first No. 1 U.S.
hit six days before with “I Want to Hold Your Hand.” At Kennedy,
the “Fab Four”—dressed in mod suits and sporting their trademark
pudding bowl haircuts—were greeted by 3,000 screaming fans who
caused a near riot when the boys stepped off their plane and onto
American soil.

FIRST DUI ARREST ON THIS DAY IN 1897

A 25-year-old London taxi driver named George Smith becomes the first
person ever arrested for drunk driving after slamming his cab into a
building. Smith later pleaded guilty and was fined 25 shillings.

In the United States, the first laws against operating a motor vehicle
while under the influence of alcohol went into effect in
New York in
1910. In 1936, Dr. Rolla Harger, a professor of biochemistry and
toxicology, patented the Drunkometer (below), a balloon-like device
into which people would breathe to determine whether they were
inebriated. In 1953, Robert Borkenstein, a former
Indiana state
police captain and university professor who had collaborated with
Harger on the Drunkometer, invented the Breathalyzer. Easier-to-
use and more accurate than the Drunkometer, the Breathalyzer
was the first practical device and scientific test available to police o
fficers to establish whether someone had too much to drink.

Despite the stiff penalties and public awareness campaigns, drunk driving
remains a serious problem in the United States. Each year, roughly 15,00
people die in alcohol-related crashes and almost 1.5 million people are
arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
