Storyline

An arrested drug dealer dies in a cell in the station house. The coroner determines that he died from self-strangulation, which puts Doyle in a jam as he was the arresting officer and was supposed to have kept an eye on his prisoner. Doyle finds himself unwillingly covering for a night shift officer who was looking after the prisoner. Meanwhile, Clem, while off the job, is approached outside a supermarket by a man who has a plan to scam the business' owners. A sting is set up to arrest the man, but things do not go according to plan when drug runners with ties to the con artist arrive on the scene, provoking a deadly shooting spree in the middle of the sting operation, leading Clem ending up getting shot. Kersey, Terry, and the other detectives try to force the crafty but dim-witted con artist, Steve Richards, to set up a big-shot lawyer who may be after him. Written by Anonymous
