Warren Earp

Warren Earp was in and out of trouble for nearly 20 years after the OK Corral fight and the Vendetta Ride.  In 1893, living in Yuma, Arizona, Warren threatened a musician called Professor Behrens, who Earp believed had stolen his woman.  Warren cornered him on a bridge between California and Arizona.  He threatened to kill the music man unless he gave him money.  Behrens forked over $25 and went free.

Earp was arrested and jailed in Yuma.  But he was able to prove that the assault occurred on the California side of the bridge and was released.
