Jon And Ponch Are Involved With A Disabled Person
9 August 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In Silent Partner,a couple of auto thieves steal a Cadillac from a guy who gives chase.Then,Jon pulls the guy out of his car because he thinks he's drunk.Jon and Ponch mistake a man with a hearing and speech defect for a drunken driver Luckily, Bonnie steps in to tell them that he's deaf. The guy wants to make a complaint against Jon and Ponch.. Saul Brandt and Frances Ripplinger,who are both hearing-impaired,make guest appearances.

In this episode,we see Jon and Ponch get involved with a disabled person.With that,it was a refreshing episode as we are not once again involved with just car chases and thieves.This adds variety to the TV show.
