Mead, following De Mille, related a traditional anecdote from John's later years of how he threw a Quaker who had offended him into the Mianus River. In the mid-1650s, he was chastised by the court for various misbehaviors, including slander and making a false accusation against Richard Law, constable of Stamford; the court stated that 'they did not remember that they mett wth such a case since they say as a court, wherin their hath bine so much mallic(e) and bitterness of spirit...'"
