Lot 363: Souvenir typescript of the November 22, 1963, Dallas Police Department apprehension report of Lee Harvey Oswald, two pages, 8.5 x 11, signed by four arresting officers in blue ballpoint: Gerald Hill, Ray Hawkins, Paul Bentley, and M. N. McDonald. In part: "We received additional information that the suspect was in the Texas Theater. Several officers answered the call, and in the process of checking the occupants of the theater, Officer McDonald approached the center section on the third row from the back. As he started to search another suspect, he observed the arrested party sitting in the third seat. As he approached this suspect the suspect said, 'This is it,' and sprang from the seat. Officer McDonald began to grapple with the suspect and the suspect got his hand on a gun that was stuck inside his shirt. As the officer and the suspect wrestled for the gun, the suspect pulled the trigger once and the gun snapped, but did not fire…after a struggle in which the suspect resisted violently he was disarmed and handcuffed." In fine condition. Accompanied by a collage sheet bearing images taken at the time of each signing.
