(UPI) 'Black Panther leader Huey 32, has jumped bail amid rumors that he has been marked for murder. His attorney, Charles Garry said that a "contract" on Newton's Ufa had been put out for him last summer by the un- derworld. He expressed concern about Newton's safety when Ihe radical black leader failed lo appear in court Friday on five charges ranging from assault with a deadly weapon, assault on a police officer and assault with intent to commit bodily harm. But Garry also said Newton has had "a bellyfull" of legal entanglements and it is possi- ble that he fled thc country. Judge Jacqueline Taber is- sued an arrest warrant for New- ton when he failed to appear in her court to answer specific charges that he shot a teenage girl and pistol-whipped his tai- lor.
