1

Appellee has recovered judgment against appellant for false arrest and malicious prosecution. Though the evidence is conflicting and by no means conclusive we think it sufficient to support the jury's verdict. We find no merit in appellant's objection to the court's charge. Since appellant did not object to the court's definition of malice we do not consider whether it was correct.

Affirmed.
