Fake CHiPs Accident Calls
28 July 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In Cry Wolf,Bogus accident calls have the CHP Officers spinning its wheels While Ponch and Jon try to get some fast food, someone on the San Diego Freeway calls in a gas truck rollover. Although he's calling from callbox "SD 283", he gives the CHP callbox number "SD 285". Ponch, Jon, Baricza, and fire trucks respond.

At the reported location of the accident, emergency response units are standing by. Grossman tells Getraer there's nothing for miles. They give up and start to head out.Finally arriving at the reported location of the accident, Ponch and Jon are told that Getraer wants to see them all back at Central. After they arrive, Getraer, leads a task force and goes over tactics to catch the guy phoning in the fake accidents.

This was one of the better episodes in the first season as the CHP officers get entangled with a creative hacker.
