Officers are out sick with the flu which started with Reed who is back. Reed spots a man with a rifle walking a man in front of him down the street. After a brief shoot out, they determine there is an issue with both men. One is involved in book making. While Reed gives a speeder a ticket, Malloy becomes involved in an argument between a customer and the store owner over the quality of fruit in a store across the street. During the night Reed sees a flash of light in a store. Although they initially find nothing wrong, Reed insists they recheck resulting in the capture a man coming off the roof. They spot a young man that appears to be in trouble but Reed loses him in a foot chase. Mac asks them to work overtime so they start with Malloy ticketing a woman for not stopping for a right turn on red on the way back to the station. At the station Mac asks them to give a female police commissioner a ride along that evening - she was the woman Malloy just ticketed for not stopping. Written by Anonymous
