Harrold Carswell, whose U.S. Supreme Court nomination was rejected by the Senate in 1970, was arrested on a battery charge outside a shopping mall men's room, a state attorney said Saturday. City police spokesmen confirmed in a brief statement that Carswell was arrested, but refused to release details. Shortly after the arrest, Carswell was admitted to Tallahassee Memorial Hospital, and a hospital spokesman said he was being treated for a nervous condition. He was refusing to accept telephone calls Saturday. State Atty. Harry Morrison said Carswell, 56, was arrested by several vice squad officers outside a men's room at the Northwood Mall shopping center. He would not elaborate. * * * A POLICE spokeswoman said Police Chief Robert Maige had said the Carswell incident was under evaluation and the charge may be dropped or new charges filed. He said he would release additional information Monday. The battery charge is a misdemeanor which carries a maximum sentence of one year in jail. Carswell was released on his own recognizance without posting bond. Carswell, then a member of the Fifth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals at New Orleans, was nominated for the Supreme Court by then-President Richard M. Nixon in 1970. Nixon nominated Carswell after · the Senate rejected his first choice, Clement F. Haynsworth Jr. of Greenville, S.C. The Senate rejected Carswell's nomination on a 51-45 vote on April 8,1970. Opponents charged that Carswell was a mediocre judge and criticized him for advocating racial segregation when he ran for office in Georgia years earlier. Carswell, who unsuccessfully sought the Republican U.S. Senate nomination in Florida in 1970. is married and has four children. 3 Promotions Listed at M.H.
