Charlie Lucky's Life
By Thomas Hunt

"[1926:] Six days after the shooting, Levy and Haffman tell police they know who Levy’s attackers were. Twenty police detectives are sent to round up the men they identify. The following day, Lucania is charged with felonious assault. Also charged are John T. 'Legs' Diamond of the Hotel Empire, his brother Eddie Diamond of the Penn Post Hotel and James Walsh of 345 West Seventieth Street. The suspects are held in connection with the Levy shooting and also questioned about the December 11 incident at Broadway and Fiftieth Street.
"When two of the suspects are brought to Levy’s hotel room for identification, the wounded insurance broker says, 'There’s some mistake. These aren’t the men.' On December 29, Lucania, the Diamond brothers and Walsh are discharged in magistrate’s court."
