Mass arrest of the sympathizers Photograph I was arrested by mistake. The police wanted Joe Ryan. They eventually sorted it out and let me go.
Sup Hare explained what happened in the following terms, " There was one case of a man of the name of Ryan, of Lake Glenrowan. There are two brothers, very much alike. We picked out one brother as being a great friend of the Kellys, and the two constables who went out to arrest this man saw what they thought to be the man, but it was really his brother, and when they found their mistake they let him go, he not knowing what was up; but, thinking there was something wrong, took a short cut, and they saw him galloping up to his brother, but the constables caught him before he got there."
