NARRATOR: Tonight on Nightwatch.



JERRY: Made a left, there; madea left.

Stop, stop, stop, stop, stop, stop, stop, stop! Let me see your hands! MAN: Get an axe in thereand let’s put it out! TONY: There’s a gas tank in there that can explode -at any second.

-Back up!Back up! Back up! Move! -All right, what’s wrong?-He’s not breathing, brother.

We don’t got time for that.

We got to go.

What’d you take tonight? Opiate?So he did take an opiate.

He’s vomiting.

♪ ♪ NARRATOR: In the city of Tampa, there are as many as 850 emergency calls every night.

These are the stories of the heroes who risk their lives to answer those calls– police officers, paramedics and firefighters.

This is Nightwatch.

♪ ♪ ROBB: Police work is complex.

It’s dangerous.

It’s demanding.

You have to be very thorough in your job, and you got to be prepared so you always come out on top.

In Tampa, we train to be prepared for every situation.

And, for me, the situations I prepare for the most are the ones I’ll never see coming.

DISPATCHER: Attention, 20-vehicle accident.

Bruce B.

Downs and Tampa Palms.

2140 hours.

DISPATCHER 2: 5820, transporting to St.


DISPATCHER: Requesting a lift confirmed by station BLS is canceled.

-(bell ringing)-DOUG: Five-four, westbound, -and 275, southbound lane.

-Copy that.

(indistinct radio transmission) -Okay, let’s go.

-(engine starts) (siren wailing) STOKES: We get a call for a motorcycle accident.

You know that this person’s probablygonna be a trauma alert.

You know that this person’s gonna have significant injury, especially in the location that we’re going to.

Should be right here.

On this side of the interstate.

On the southbound lane.

Stay on the side of the– yeah.

All right, I see him up there.

(indistinct radio chatter) Rescue 4 on the scene.

Oh, we’re bad.

Let’s go.

STOKES: We pull up on scene, we see the motorcyclist on the ground.

We can see that he does have some injuries.

I notice that his bike is way down the interstate, which tells me he was travelling at a high rate of speed.

Could have internal injuries.

Is he talking? He’s alert and oriented? FIREFIGHTER: W-watch your feet, got a lot of blood down there.

STOKES:Tib-fib? -Check the pelvis.

-We got one– we’ll call that one point on his leg.


Ow, right there.

(truck horn passes by) All right.


STOKES: My biggest concern with the patient right now is a head injury, injuries to his spine, and also if he has internal injuries that are gonna affect his breathing and circulation.

All right, brother, how you doing? Okay.

Uh, sorry, brother, we can’t give you anythingto drink right now.

STOKES: We don’t want to give the patient any water because it may induce vomiting, which is gonna compromise the airway.

Also, we don’t know what different tests the patient’s gonna need in the hospital.

We don’t want to interfere with the results of any of those tests by giving the patient anytype of fluids whatsoever.

Where’s your back hurt? Middle, lower back? DOUG:That sucks, I know.

STOKES: Traumatic injuries, you want to be on scene no more than ten minutes.

You want to have this patient in the emergency room, so if he needs to go to the OR, he can get there as soon as possible.

Two lacs, one about an inch and a half, one’s about an inch.

STOKES: I want to lookat that leg right there.

What day is it today? MAN:(bleep) STOKES: You don’t know what dayof the week it is? DOUG:He doesn’t remember it? STOKES:He’s in shock.

I’m gonna call aTrauma Alert on him.

We’re going.

STOKES: A lot of times when you have a trauma patient, they’re not going to feel things that they normally would feel.

This could be due to shock, -adrenaline.

-(indistinct radio chatter) -(man groans)-DOUG: We good? All right, let’s go.

-(siren wailing)-STOKES: He has a pulse rate of 150.

Blood pressure, 57 over 41.

PARAMEDIC: Push on that footright there bud.

I want you to rotate ittowards the inside.

DOUG: In order to asses his ability of movement to his extremities, we have to do a few tests.

But we have to be very careful not to pull or push too hard, causing further damage.

(siren wailing) DOUG:No pain back there? Any pain? All good? -STOKES: Tampa General? -DOUG: Yep.

You all right? ♪ ♪ DOUG: You know, that’s like the.



fourth motorcycle accidentI’ve been to right there.

-Oh, yeah, no, they lay it downon that turn -They just kill it.

-all the time.


He didn’t have that helmet on, he’d be dead right now.

All right, one Trauma Alert down.

What else we got? (alarm bell ringing) (siren wailing) MARK: We’re going with Engine Ten.

We got an unknown-aged male patient.

Confirmed stabbing in the chest.

Per TBD.

Happened at a Laundromat, so see what we got.

God, can you imagine gettingstabbed in the chest? Depending on where, no.

You think you’d rather getshot or stabbed? Psh.

I don’t know.

Probably shot.

-I don’t know, that’s a tough one.


It’s kind of like would yourather burn to death, or freeze to death? I can see lights already -from here, though.

-AUSTIN: Yeah.

Rescue 5 is on scene.

(Mark groans) ‘Sup, y’all? Anytime we get a callfor a stabbing, the main concern is where the patient’s stabbed, so if it’s anywhere to their head, neck or torso, that’s very life-threatening.

How are his lung sounds? Clear all over? All right.

We’re gonna go to, uh, Tampa General more than likely.

Huh? So you don’t want togo to the hospital? I can respect that.

How’s your breathing? You have any trouble breathing? Hurts? Okay.

All right, are you able to, uh, with assistance fromthis gentleman here, are you able to walk over hereand have a seat for me? Did she cut you or did shedirect stab you? Do you know? Look, buddy, I knowyou’re really upset, but you need to calm downand let me know what kind of treatmentyou want, okay? All right.

AUSTIN: You do understandthe police will meet you at the hospital, right? And get your sideof the story, right? He’s having tunnel vision, he’s not really thinking about his own healthat this point.

Wants to make sure that he files his report.

There’s a lot of unknowns, as far as internal injuries or how significant the stab wound is.

And we really want to get him checked out as soon as possible.

You’re gonna sign thisright here for me.

This statesthat you’re not going.

Here’s the deal, if you don’twant to go the hospital, I need you sign this.


Well, then here’sthe other option, at least let me check you out so I can make surethere’s nothing life-threatening right now.

Okay, well, listen.




Refusals arereally, really tough.

You always want to do everything you can within your ability to care for a patient and make sure that they get the ultimate care that they need.

We always try our best, but, at the end of the day, if they don’t want to go, we can’t force them.

AUSTIN:Went from being a Trauma Alert to a freakin’ refusal.

Hey, man.



What the hell? I mean, I don’t know, but.



if someone stabbed me, I’d be going to a hospital.

♪ ♪ Earlier tonight, there was a shoot-out outside of a liquor store.

Will and Dimitri received a surveillance video.

And we’re responding over to their location because they think they see the suspect vehicle.

I got it.

I’m watching him right here.

I guess they getinto a shooting.

-See? Boom.

-BETHANY: Mm-hmm.

-(gunshots) So this is the car he thinksis up here right now.

We’re headed over to you.

We’re all converging near where Will and Dimitri spotted the suspect vehicle.

Yeah, this is a good spoton the other side of the store.

(garbled radio transmission) Be right back.

I’m positioning myself in the bushes so I can get a better look at the suspect’s vehicle.

Will, Dimitri, Bethany and I are all converging on the suspects.

(garbled radio transmission) The car.



behind here.

They’re worried about something.

Can they.



Can they see anybody? (car engine starts) (car engine starts and revs) BETHANY:Oh, my God.

See, yeah, it just passed me, and it’s parking.

-(engine revving)-ROBB: If the suspects spot me, the situation could get a lot more dangerous.

BETHANY:They blacked out.

(tires squealing) Hey, come here.

Come here.

Come here.

Don’t run.

-(tires squealing)-Hey, come here! .

(siren blaring, tires squeal) That’s gonna be it.

(sirens blaring, tires squealing -Get your hands up, man.

-Keepyour hand up.

Keep your hand up.

-Put your hands right here.

-Put your hands up.

BETHANY: Why you pullinginto a vacant lot? You guys smell likea marijuana factory.

Are you growing it, smoking it?It smells like everything.

-BETHANY: So who lives here?-MAN: A good friend of mine.

I thought you saidit was a cousin.

It’s not but.



BETHANY: These guys are denying being involved in the shooting, which is to be expected.

Where is the gun? There’s gotto be a gun in there.

What’s in there? Is that a stem, or is that a rock? Cocaine.

It’s cocaine.

There’s cocaine in the car, sir.

Hey, I think I foundwhat they dropped! ROBB: I told youit smelled like weed.

Fact they tried to ditch it istampering with evidence.

-(siren whoops)-ROBB: After tonight, you need to stay awayfrom that store.

You’re going to jail, too.

For possession of cocaine.

It’s in the car.

It was stuck overon the passenger side.

Even thoughwe didn’t find the gun, we got them on drug possession, so we can hold them for a while until we can conduct a more thorough investigation into the shooting.

Ah, damn it.

You left the window down.

-Oh, God.

-Is it soaking wet? -It is soaking wet.

-Oh! Sorry! I’m sorry.

I jumped out so quick.

ROBB: Typical Tampa.

The rain starts pouring out of nowhere.

I feel like I’m drivinginto Gotham City right now.

-(laughing): Why?-‘Cause it’s raining, and it’s dark, I’m soaking wet.

(Bethany laughs, thunder rumbles) (siren blaring) When you first had your, uh, your daughter, when a pedi call came out, were you more like, “Uh”? Yeah, a little bit.

I mean, you know, you start to tie -calls together.

-It hits home? -Hits home a little bit more?-It does.

I was never a big fanof pediatric calls, ever.


Hey, what’s going on? Okay.

MARK: How long has she beenkind of lethargic like this? Has she been having a lotof pee-pee diapers or poopy diapersand everything else? She’s not febrile.

Any medicalproblems that you know of? She take medicineon the regular? MARK: You know, something’s really wrong here.

On a child that’s eight months old, you think the worst.

It could be partially-blocked airwaybecause, when they’re that little, all they want to do is explore the world by putting every little thing in their mouth.

She does look kind ofglassed-over, right? All right, let’s, uh.



let’s go ahead and load you up.

We’ll get you over.

Ma’am, you’re gonna sit on here, and you’re gonna hold her, okay? (crickets chirping) MARK:We got to do a few things.

We’re gonna try to start an IV, see what the lungs sound like.

We’re gonna getsome vital signs going, and then we’ll get rolling.

What’s the best placeto get an IV on this, uh.



? MARK:Top of the hand usually, or maybe the foot, underside of the wrist.


Let’s see what happens.

We checked her airway.

It was clear, and we listened to her breathing, and everything sounded good, and so, at this point, we wantedto check and see what her blood sugar was.

We used a little lancet to break the skin so we can get a drop of blood to test her blood sugar.

-MARK: No cryingwhen you stuck her? -No crying.

MARK:That’s not good.

She didn’t really respond to us poking her foot.

That was the point whereI started to think, “Oh, man, she should have respondedto that.

” (engine revving, sirens blaring) MARK:There was nothing that she was doingthat was, like, abnormal or anything like that, or.



? But she ate good? Is it possibleshe got into anything? Did she get into any, like, chemicals or anything? -98.


MARK: Her temperature is normal.

You get some oxygen going.

See how well she takes this, okay? MARK: We’re giving the baby oxygen, and she keeps pushing the mask away, so, we’re relieved with that.

-(overlapping chatter)-Not anymore.

MARK: Seems like she’s a little more alert.

She’s starting to act like a normal baby.

See if she takes on.

You got her? -(crying)-I know, sweetie.

I’m sorry.

MARK: Babies are really hard because they can never tell you exactly what’s going on, but a crying baby is always a healthy or good baby.

That’s a good sign.

-(crying)-She’s a little more alert now, obviously, withthe pain in her hand, so.



How is she reacting now, Mom?A little better? Vital signs are allwithin normal limits.

Temp is 98.

5, non-febrile.

O2 blow-by is in place, and we’ll be therein about ten minutes.

When she’s in the ER, thedoctor’s probably gonna order blood work and basically want to monitor her to see if she replicates the episode that she initially had when we had arrived on scene.

♪ Happy birthday to you ♪ I’ve been with Tampa Fire Rescuefor eight glorious years.

I’ve been at Station 11 for six years.

I got into fire rescue becauseI really wanted to help people and I felt this job would give me the opportunity to help peopleat their worst moment.

Cap, if there are any issues, you know who’s the issue maker.

And he’s standing rightbehind you.

I have been a firefighter EMT coming up on my eight year anniversary.

I currently am assignedto Station 11.

I always liked high risk stuff that revolved aroundhelping other people.

You put most of your stuffin the freezer, don’t you? Who got FatBoys? You bring those in? Oh, my goodness.

(alarm bell ringing) (siren blaring) What’s the comment?What did we get with those? “Ineffective breathing, unconscious.

” DAVE: We get a call– an overdose, so CPR’s being attempted by Tampa Police Department officers.

Rescue 11, on scene.

-Grab a board.

-(indistinct radio transmission) Come on.

-This him?-Yeah, that’s it.

-They gonna load him up.

-All right.

TONY:Slowing respirations.

DAVE:I already have the pads out.

TONY:Let’s just get him loaded.

DAVE:Pull the board down, guys.

We’re gonna roll him.

OFFICER:Is it a two-man or a one-man? One-man roll is fine.

Yeah, let’s just roll.

Go ahead and strap him.

TONY: My brothers from TPD did a great job of keeping this guy goinguntil we arrived.

But he’s fading fast.

He needs Narcan, like, now.




We got to go.

We don’t got timefor that, let’s go.

Hey, we don’t got time for that.

Let’s go.

We got to go.

We got called toa drug overdose, and he’s guppy breathing, which is not good.

Let’s go carry it down.

One, two and three.


-DAVE: Which way?Going down your way? Slow it down, slow it down.

(indistinct conversations) Be quick about it, Andy.

We’re gonna get going.

-Let’s go.

-(siren wails) TONY: Everybody relax.

Do what we do.

♪ ♪ -Sugar’s 155.

-Let’s get him on the pads.


16 right AC.

Sir! -Unresponsive.

-What’s your name? All right.

Keep bagging him.

DAVE:You gonna OPA him? TONY: I’m giving this patient a shot of Narcan.

It’s an opiate blocker.

When it works, it literally will bring a patient back to life.

-Wait a minute.


He’s up.

He’s coming up.


We’re taking youto the hospital.

-You were unconscious.

-You know what I did? I hit him with some Narcan IM.

-Ninja mode, brother.


I ain’t new to this, I’m true to this.

What kind of drugs you took? My name’s Tony, man.

I don’t knowwhat you did tonight, but you was this far, man.

You was this far from the light.

I’m not preaching to you, I’m just saying.

A little bit more, if somebodywouldn’t have found you, man, we’ll be taking a tripsomewhere else.



to the morgue.

This is a wake-up call for you, buddy.

With ODs, whenever I can, I try to give the patientsome real talk.

Spike a bag for me.

Try to get that heart ratedown some.

DAVE: He’s breathing on his own.

Let’s put the BP on him.

What’d you take tonight? Opiate? He says he did takean opiate.

-He’s vomiting.

-You got to suction him out.

If you want to spit more out, spit it out.

TONY: We saved this guy’s life this time.

But next time may be too late.

♪ ♪ Well, he said bless youand bless your families.

-He said he’s gonna change hislife around.

-Did he? Wow.

That’s cool.

I mean, hedefinitely looked shell-shocked.

Like, “oh, I-I messed up.

” Probably was a wake-up callfor him.

So that’d be one less call we’llhave to run to in the future.

(both chuckling) TONY: Hey, that was good work.

-DAVE: Thanks, brother.

-Good work.

(indistinct dispatcher chatter) PIERRE: Something wrong with my car, man.

It won’t go faster than 110.

‘Cause it’s old.

You ain’t old, baby.

Just got some miles on you, that’s all.

It’s like, vroom, zoom, zoom-zoom-zoom-zoom.

My baby need a break.

JERRY:They rolled that stop sign.


Bring myself in 383, 10-8, copy signal 50, please.

It’s gonna be a red Chrysler 200, honked about four times.

Make the final stop, Palm and 14th.

Watch the rear left door, rear left door.

What’s up, man? Hey, man, listen, that stop sign over there, you ran that stop sign.

You can’t yield, you got tocome to a complete stop.

You have your licenseand proof of insurance? Appreciate it, sir.

What’s your name?First name? Antonio? Brown? JERRY: The passenger in the back seat gave us the name of a Pittsburgh wide receiver.

I’m pretty sureit was a fake name, though.

Listen, I’m-a give you this one warning.

Is this your real name? Give me your real name.

(bleep) You got a warrant? You do? What is it for? Technical? All right, just step out right quick.

You don’t got no weaponsor nothing on you, right? JERRY: A technical warrant means if they’re on probation, they didn’t pass the urine screening or they were late for an interview with their probation officer.

It could be a multitudeof things.

-(handcuffs tightening)-You’re not under arrest.

Not at all.

All right, you’re just being detained.

-There’s a difference.

-Any weed in the car now, bro? I’m asking’cause I’m gonna check.

You look like your– your heart about to bustout your chest, man.

Yeah, but why’d you jokeabout it like that? I know, it shouldn’t make a difference, but I knowwhere you’re coming from.

So that’s like me saying, “All black people have drugs, ” or, “All black people have guns.

” You stereotyping, bro.

Yeah, you are.

It’s all about educationand communication, right? That’s all it’s about.

JERRY: As we’re talking to the guys, I look into the center console, I can see scales, which is considereddrug paraphernalia.

And that gives us probable causeto search the car.

Got a warrant, 10-15 already and we need tosearch the vehicle.

I’m gonna have your buddystep out real quick.

(siren chirps) (indistinct dispatcher chatter) JERRY: We found a little bit of marijuana in the car.

It was under 20 grams, which means it’s only a traffic citation here in Tampa.

We confiscate the marijuana and there’s no jail time.

And there’s no weaponsin that car that you know of? -No, sir.

-Okay, just this stuff? Planning on selling it, you just plan on using itfor yourself? You already used it? Scoot over, man.

Scoot back.

The only thing you goin’ foris the warrant.

But this has nothingto do with you, okay? That’s why I’m sittingnext to you, man-to-man.

You’re done with this.

All right, bro.

Appreciate it.

These two are goodfor citations.

You’re just gonna get–you’re gonna get a citation for the marijuana and for the, uh, paraphernalia, okay? And then, you can eithertake it to court or you can pay the fine, it’s up to you, bro.

It’s not–it’s not a criminal charge.

Yeah and thenwe’ll take care of him.

(chuckles)You want to go with me or you want to go home? All right, man.

DISPATCHER:40, 10-4.

Well, all of usaren’t like that.

Don’t be so nervousnext time, man.

We ain’t out heretrying to kill black people.

All right.

Take care, man.

Whoa! Can we go get that car, please? Yes, come on! (siren blaring) PIERRE: Which way did he go? He blacked out and made a left.

We make a left on this next– on the next streetand cut him off.

32, we need backup.

We got a vehicle fleeing from us.

Any– any street, he’s trying to get away from us.

Look down.

Look to the left, I’ll look to the right.

(siren blaring) A lot of police officerslike high-speed chases, because we’re adrenaline junkies.

You want to be the first in, the first to grab ’em, first to go.

But the dangers of that are these guys are gonna do -whatever it takes to get away from us.

-(tires screeching) And that includes hurting other people, unfortunately, so there’s a fine line that needs to be there when we have to back off for the safetyof the community.

That’s them! He turned all his lights off.

He’s trying to get away from usright now, I believe.

(siren blaring) Clear right.


-(tires screeching)-Stop, stop, stop, stop, stop, stop, stop, stop! stop, stop, stop, stop, stop! Show me your hands! So, the driver bails out the car, backup officers take the passenger into custody, and he has his hands up.

So I continue to pursuethe driver on foot.

The driver jumps over the fence, so I peek over.

I’m, like, 15 seconds behind him.

I get there, I’m like, he– he’s gone.

I see a floodlight come on in a yard, so I’m gonna go check this spot real quick before we go and boom, I see him.

Let me see your hands!Let me see your hands! 10-30, got one at gunpoint.

Let me see your hands, bro! Don’t move, you hear me? Come out slowwith your hands out.

Turn around, turn around, turn around.

Yeah, we’ll go–he’ll go back and get it.

We search the car and we find more cell phones.

Then, one’s in a pink case, so that kind of raises our suspicion, there.

Then, the money and other items which leads us to believe that he’s out committing crimes.

You say go back thereto get your phone, man? That’s not your pink phone? So what started out with me writing a trafficcitation for someone else, ended up with us arresting two suspects in a high-speed chase.

It’s definitely a strange occurrence, but we have to stay prepared for anything.

PIERRE: He almost hit us one time, ’bout killing us.

Bro, when he blacked out, I knew what time it was.

I knew it.

I’m like, “He’s gonna flee.

” Remember when I was like, “Stop, stop, stop”? I looked– I looked underthe car, all I see is this.



(imitates footfalls)His feet.

I saw red shoes, that’s all.

Yeah, I saw the red shoesand then he was gone, man.

Running for his life.

Great way to end the night.

It is so easy to make a milliondollars in this country, yet I cannot find a freakin’way to do it.

You know? George Foreman.



gets, like, two pieces of Teflonand electrifies it, -and turns it into a ForemanGrill.

-First of all, George Foreman didn’tdo anything, but say, “Yeah, I’ll put my nameon that.

” Well, that’s true.

But that’s all that it is.

It’s two pieces of Teflon.

That’s true.

That are heatedthrough electricity.

Oh, it’s the Foreman Grill.

Look at it.

It practically cleans itself.

So does every panyou cook eggs on, bro.

(siren blaring, horn honks) DOUG: 4 en route.

Oh, is this guyon the ground? STOKES: Rescue 4 is on sceneand therefore we’re.



STOKES:Hey, Cap.

MAN: This gentlemanhere said that he was home in bed, sleeping.

Said, uh, he woke up–the pain woke him up.

Said he has a history, some kind of cardiac history.

We don’t know exactlywhat it is.

I’m trying to.



I was trying to read it here.

Did you take any nitro? STOKES:How many did you take? MAN: How many did you.



STOKES: Can you talk?Oh, okay.

I just want to make sureyou can talk.

STOKES: Yeah? After a few minutes, I recognized this patient.

I’ve transported himseveral times.

I know that he’s mentally handicapped, and I know this patient stays with a family member.

DOUG: You ready? Nice and high on here, and kick your feet up.

Sit all the way back.

So zero to ten right now, where you at, pain scale? STOKES: Zero to ten, how bad’s your pain, buddy? DOUG: Okay, well, you’ve got to tell us.

That’s how we scale on ifour medication’s working or not.

An eight, okay.

Hurt when you push on it? -Does that hurt?-Yeah.

It hurts when I push?Huh? You’ve got to speak up.

It’s kinda loud back here, okay? -Yeah!-There you go.

-All right.

-That’s what I’m talking about.

What did the doctor sayis wrong with your heart? Did he say something? DOUG: Surgery? Why?What’s wrong with it? Do you have anirregular heartbeat? Yeah? Do you have an enlarged heart?Yeah? -DOUG: Got a valve?-STOKES: Yeah.

-I got you, dawg.

-(man barks) -Oh! Oh!-There you go.

-Big dawg.

-STOKES: That’s whatI’m talking about.

Next week’s your birthday? Oh, yeah? Look at that.

Happy birthday.

The patient’s pain seems to be reduced.

This is probably from the nitros that he took before.

So he’s obviouslyfeeling better.

Everything’s looking good.

Your blood pressure’s good.

Your pulse rate’s good and all that.

So you just try to relax, take it easy.

We’ll get you over there.

All righty? This your shirt? Did you run? Oh, you did? Good for you, man.

Good for you.

STOKES: All right, my man.

Well, guess what.



we’re here.

I got a green bag here, too.

Hey, I’m gonnaput you in a room, and then I’m gonna bring ’em allout there to you, okay? I like your shirt.

STOKES: You got a medal, didn’t you? -MAN: Yeah.

-STOKES: Yeah, it’s in the bag.

The medal’s in the bag.

(train whistle blares) -ROBB: Hey.

Hey!-BETHANY: Hey.

-What did he say?-What’d you say? Boy, I wish I hadbike lights for you.

One of the cool thingsabout this job is the people we get to meet and come in contact with out on the street.

I think it’s importantfor us to help people that ask for our help, because they’re reaching out to us, and that’s our job.

Hey, did you ever singthat song– -Louis Armstrong?-Louis Armstrong.

-Louis Armstrong?-“What a Wonderful World.

” You sound like the guythat sings that.



that classic.

♪ What a wonderful world.

♪ BETHANY (laughs):You got it, man! Hey, listen, I’m gonna get bike lights, and then I’m gonnacome to your house.


-For real?-BOTH: For real.

We’ll see you soon.

He deserves lights.

BETHANY:Every day is something new.

What’s new today? It’s like new little, um, skits of life, involving pretty muchthe same actors.

ROBB: Oh, let’s go.

(siren blaring) The dispatcher put a BOLO out for a stolen vehicle in the area.

Being that we’re so close, we have a really good chance of catching these guysright now.

White Nissan Murano.

They just stole it.

So apparently, she wentinto the gas station and left her keysinside the vehicle.

-I love it.

-And came out.



-And he got in it.


It’s been aboutten minutes, maybe.

Oh, come on, baby, let’s get lucky.

BETHANY: Black male, no shirt, brown pants.

(dispatcher speaksindistinctly) All right, so he’s gotno shirt on, so he didn’t come from far.

Probably back up in theseneighborhoods somewhere.

All available ROC units are responding to the area where the Nissan Murano was taken.

We’re spreading out to look for the vehicle.

(dog barking) In Tampa, when cars are stolen, they’re usually used to commit other crimes.

Oh, geez, where are they at?They found the car.

An officer just advised thathe spotted the stolen vehicle, and Air Service is on the way to help.

DISPATCHER: Air Service is on their way.

ROBB: Now it’s a matter of trapping the vehicle, making an arrest, and getting the vehicle back to the victim.

(siren blaring) I think right hereat this next.



Hold on, he might becoming right towards us.

He just went that way.

(tires screech) (bleep) He just went that way.

(tires screech) (bleep) ROBB: As we’re looking for the vehicle, we hear a supervisorget on the radio, and he’s behindthe white Nissan Murano that takes off and flees from him.

-BETHANY: He’s bailing.

-ROBB: All right.


Put myself at 382.

It looks like they’re out here.

We hear there are three suspects who bailed outof the white Nissan Murano.

If he’s heavyset, he probablydidn’t run that far.

He’s probably hunkered downin one of these yards.

ROBB: We hear that one of the suspects has been taken into custody, but there are stilltwo suspects on the run.

So we set up a perimeter and we bring the K-9 units in.

Right here, off to your left.

Yeah, right back here.

ROBB:You gonna let them go? ROBB: Okay, cool.

Yeah, do not get out of the carwith his dog.

His dog is the meanest dogI’ve ever seen.

If it’s a big guy, he ain’t getting far.

When the K-9 officers arrived, we knew the perimeter was secure, so Bethany and I went back on patrol.

-It’s not the right car? -It’sanother white Nissan Murano.

What are the chances of that? Are you serious? We copy, Jake.

Thanks for the info.

We’ll definitely be lookingfor that one.

(laughter) (alarm bell ringing) (siren blaring) TONY: A shed on fire.


It’s got gasoline in it, and it’s close to the house.

Brother, I was asleepand I was deep.

-Deep sleep? -Oh, yeah.

You can tell right here.

Look at this, bro, that’s my hair.

-(laughs) -Got a little toupeeaction going on over there.

(indistinct radio transmission) Rescue 11 on scene.

DISPATCHER: Rescue 11 on scene, your alarm is off.

TONY:See if you can find a hydrant.

DAVE:Engine 4 driver to chief one.

TONY: Come on, we gotto do something, quick.

Dave and I get on scene, we hurry up and put on our gear, and immediately, we see smoke coming from every direction.

We know that there’s a gas tank in there that can explode at any second.

-Go!-DAVE: Need another pony.

-Go ahead and charge that line.

-I got water for you.

-DAVE: That ain’t long enough, bro.

-We’re just gonna pull it! We’re just gonna– we’re notgonna– don’t charge it! Well, get our ass in thereand let’s put it out.

DAVE:I got it.

Go! TONY:There’s gas in the shed.

Back up, back up, back up!Whoa! TONY:There’s gas in the shed.

Back up, back up, back up! Whoa! Dave and I arrive at the sceneof the shed fire.

A propane tank has just exploded.

We have to assume that there are more.

This is a very dangerous situation.

DAVE: Need another pony.

That ain’t long enough, bro.

-Hold on, back there.

-DAVE: Hold up on charging it.

Have any smoke? (indistinct radio transmission) TONY:And look inside that tire.

I saw some embersinside that tire.

(indistinct radio transmission) DAVE: This shed had a lot of different contents in it, and there were some propane tanks, and it’s really crucial that we were ableto cool the environment and extinguish the fire.

TONY: So now, you know, we’re just, kind of, in the support mode, so to speak.

TONY:See that? Hey, thanks for your help, Chris.

DISPATCHER: Yeah, I got it now.

Now we’re secure.

TONY:Hey, boss.

How you doing? Well, good thing, it didn’t getto the house, man.

That could’ve easily, you know, got much worsethan what it was, so.



Any idea how you thinkit started? All right, they’ll probably have an arson investigatorcome out and.



-All right.




you know, take a look.

All right, boss man.

Good luck to you, man.

Owner came out, we started talking, and said he had all his tools in there.

Any time anybody loses something, especially of value like that, you know, that’s a sad state of affairs.

TONY: Yeah, he didn’t seemto be that upset.

I think I would’ve beena little bit more upset, all my tools going up in flames.

Man, you taking that offlike an old man.

-Listen, old thunder cat.

-(laughs) I got a little longevityin this body, all right? I’m doing thingsslow for a reason.

Young thunder cat, old is relative, my friend.

-It is relative.

-(laughs) TONY: Let’s go so we can save another life! DAVE: Let’s do it, brother! (dispatchers laughingover radio) Headed to the district.

We are heading to the district.

Are you withsome laughing hyenas? (laughter continues) (yawns)I’m getting tired.

Like, um, should’ve been homean hour ago.

ROBB: We got to head to the station.

Well, well, well.

ROBB: Earlier tonight, we were in a high-speed pursuit of a stolen white Nissan Murano.

It ended up not being the stolenMurano that we were looking for.

-Oh, my God, that’s it, isn’t it? -Oh, gosh, it– is it? It’s this guy right herewith no shirt on.

We come upover the railroad tracks and on my left, I see a white Nissan Murano parked at the coin laundry.

-BETHANY: Yep, it is.

-ROBB: All right.

Get out of the car, man.

Get out of the car! Do not move.

Do not move.

You got me? Got a signal 10.

37th and MLK, going 1015.

This is him.

How’d you get this car? BETHANY:Gosh.

Hold on, I’ll let them know.

It’s on a white Nissan Murano.


(chuckles) -You kidding me?-(laughs) I was just getting readyto tell you.



I was like, there’s no wayhe’s doing laundry.

ROBB: After searching for this stolen vehicle all night, all of a sudden, there’s the stolen vehicle right to my left.

It’s funny how thingsjust work out on this job.

I feel pretty good.

I figured that, at the end of the night, we’d probably runacross something like this, because we’ve been tryingto get off on time.

It does usually happenwhen we’re going home, right? -Right.

-I didn’t thinkthat was gonna be it.

I’m like, why would hebe at the Laundromat? I knew it was gonna be it.

‘Cause you said, we’re finally getting back -at a decent time.

-So I jinxed us.

As soon as you said that, I was gonna tell you, I bet we come across it.

And then, as soon as we cameover the railroad tracks, I’d go, huh? Hmm.

Look at that.


ROBB: The other night, we bumped into Willy, who is a regular that we know, and he needed a bike light.

BETHANY:Is that his bike? ROBB:Looks like it.

So we’re going over to surprise him with one now.

Willy! Hello? BETHANY:We brought you a present.

I so appreciate you.

ROBB:Show him how it works.

You want us to put iton your bike? -Uh, yeah.

-I’ll get your bike.

You’re hurt.

One thing that all the Tampa police officers get to see is that we have a community that really supports us.

When you can help someone out with just a simple bike light, and it makes their day, that makes me feel pretty good.

WILLY:I appreciate y’all.

-BETHANY: No problem.

-WILLY: Thank you very much.

-Just use the tape, all right, buddy? -Yes, sir.

-Yes, sir.

-We don’t want you to get hit.

-I don’t want to get hit!-But we promised you, so.



Yeah, you did.

I didn’t doubt you.

Thank you very much, man.

I really appreciate that.

BETHANY:All right.

You’re welcome.

ROBB: It’s a job that’s deep down inside in your soul, that you know you’re doing something good.
