Mr. Roberts


After his usual weekly visit for drunkenness, Otis has a minor fall when exiting his cell. He wants to just forget about the incident and tells Barney and Floyd that he has an old football injury and has always had trouble with his knee. Barney however insists that they have to file a report and when Otis goes to a lawyer to get his statement notarized, the shady fellow suggests that he sue the County for $5,000. Needless to say, this doesn't sit well with Mayberry's law enforcement officers. Unfortunately, Floyd doesn't really remember what Otis said at the time and Otis himself wasn't completely recovered from the night before and can't quite remember how it happened.
