And then, less than 5 months later, Hoole has left
the force, and offending against the law!

It seems like he's at it again!
This piece doesn't tell you that Joseph Counsell was
an ex-Preston Borough Policeman himself! (personal knowledge)
Neither is there any indication which beerhouse the fracas took place.

THEN AND NOW
1807
A close of land called "THE CROWN" situated near
CROWN STREET, an acre and a half in extent,
advertised "to be let". This is now a dingy, 
thickly populated, and by no means over-civilised
part of Preston.
