Muff Potter is the town drunk who is framed for the murder of Dr. Robinson. Although his kind nature and drunken state make him harmless, Potter is persecuted by the entire town that believes that he is a murderer. Tom is conflicted if he should tell the truth (blaming Injun Joe who is dangerous) about what he saw which would prove Muff's innocence.
