Twenty-eight-year-old jitney (vehicle for hire) driver Browning Tuggle was lynched in Hope (Hempstead County) for allegedly attacking a white woman. Despite Tuggles protestations of innocence, a mob of about 100 men gathered and broke down the door of the jail. They took Tuggle from his cell, hanged him from the water tank tower, and riddled his body with bullets. According to the Arkansas Gazette, more than 2,000 people viewed Tuggles body before it was cut down.
