Lancaster Police Officer Weitzel arrested two men in two
separate incidents for beating their wives. On This Day in 1880, Officer
Weitzel arrested Frantz Keppel. Keppel’s wife charged him with cruelly beating
her. Earlier in the week, Officer Weitzel arrested Casper Dittman after his
wife charged him with drunkenness and assault and battery.
