This is the first episode of CHiPs for season 3.Ponch has to find some celebrities to attend the annual CHP roller disco. Meanwhile, a trio on roller skaters are committing robberies near the beach.

At the pier, a kid observes someone steal a wallet and gets the idea of stealing some change from a woman on a pay phone. He escapes by grabbing onto a bumper of a station wagon. Jon and Getraer find the kid on the freeway and manage to stop the car. Ponch and Jon go and talk to Mark older sister. Ponch learns that Mark's sister teaches some celebrities how to roller skate so Ponch talks her into getting some for the CHP roller disco. Later, two guys cause an accident when they lower the rear end of their car and create sparks.

That afternoon, the roller skating thieves are at it again. They rob a jewelery store as Mark watches. Ponch and Jon each chase the skating men while the woman gets away.The episode ends its first part.
