Note: The Earps knew from reports they had
received that Frank McLaury, and Ike
and Billy Clanton, were in violation of this Ordinance. The
confrontation that led to the gunfight grew out of Virgil Earp's
determination to enforced Tombstone's law prohibiting the carrying of
No.7, Section 1 (effective April 12,
It shall be the duty of all policemen to arrest all parties found in the public streets within the city limits, engaged in brawling, quarreling, etc., and all persons who be shall found in any disorderly act whereby a breach of the peace might be occasioned.
Note:Ike Clanton at several times in several saloons and other public places, including Fly's Boarding House, had threatened the Earps and and Doc Holliday, in apparent violation of this ordinance. Virgil Earp made the arrest on a public street.
