IN 1988, local newsman C.A. Moore was truly in the right place at the right time. While having a conversation with then sheriff Leonard ‘Buck’ Hough, the sheriff was summoned to give chase to a suspect through the streets of Butler. Hough told Moore “hop in, let’s go”, which resulted in the arrest of the subject and this- a locally famous photo that literally has been seen around the world. -from the Headliner/museum archives
