HE IS INSANE
George Orio, a Italian, who was examined before Judge T. W. Harris this morning for insanity and allowed his freedom, no sooner had gotten outside of the courtroom than he began tearing his hair and attempted to butt his brains out against the side of the Court House and had to be arrested to keep him from taking his life. He will undergo another examination tomorrow morning and will probably be sent to an asylum.
Orio some days ago jumped into the Tidal Canal at Alameda and was rescued only to demonstrate the fact of his insanity in other ways. He was taken to the Receiving Hospital and charged with insanity.
