20 May 1920 Case of R. Guglielmi How He Was Detained as a Witness Only and Soon Released

The New York Tribune sometime ago published an article given out by the District Attorney Office (DA Swann) telling of the arrest and detention of a Rudolfo Guglielmi self-styled Italian “Marquis” under an order of the Court of General Sessions, as a material witness against a policeman who had been indicted on charges of accepting bribes from keepers of questionable resorts in the Tenderloin. The article quoted then District Attorney Swann as saying that it was expected that Mr. Guglielmi would disclose information of importance in its investigation of vice and blackmail conditions.  Mr. Guglielmi was not taken into custody upon any criminal charge. The New York Tribune did not assert or intend to assert the contrary and it neither made nor intended to make any reflection upon him. He was detained only as an expected witness against others, and when it appeared that there was no charge and no evidence that he had committed any offense, he was speedily released from custody by order of the Supreme Court. Mr. Guglielmi, formerly a professional dancer has recently entered the motion picture field.
