It was a bone-chilling and windy December afternoon, and the elderly man was pumping gas into his car at the mini-market gas station on Hollywood Boulevard when another, younger man walked up. He was tall--taller than the old man--and described by witnesses as looking like a "street person." He made a grab for the old man's wallet, and the man turned, to protect his money. The tall man pushed. The old man fell. He struck his head on the asphalt when he fell--struck it hard.

Benjamin Hayes rode into the pueblo on a mule Feb. 2, 1850, carrying a shotgun and a Bowie knife for protection. Later that year, he became the first county attorney. In two years, he was elected district judge, traveling by horseback and carriage throughout Southern California to administer justice, according to historian W.W. Robinson in his 1959 book "Lawyers of Los Angeles."
