***SPOILERS** Raymond Burr as Special Police Consultant Robert T. Ironside goes into his Perry Mason mode in trying to exonerate his good friend Det Sgt. Ed Brown, Don Galloway, on a police brutality charge that resulted in the person he was involved in arresting Barbara Chase, Susan O'Connell,dying from a brain hemorrhage. Called to "Frddie's Pad" in the Height-Hashbury district of San Francisco to check on illegal drug use Sgt. Brown finds a black & blue Barbara alone in a private room freaking out on drugs and tries to subdue her. As things soon turn out Barbara accuses Sgt. Brown of beating her almost unconscious during the incident. Later she goes into convulsions and dies with Sgt. Brown now in danger of not only losing his job but serving time behind bars on a homicide rap!

With Barbara's dad top city lawyer Eldon Chase, William Weldon, calling for justice in his daughter's death Chief Ironside takes up Sgt. Brown's case, outside of the court room, and soon finds out that Barbara lived a double life: An all American high school girl by day and a drugged out acid tripping hippie by night! Not only that it was someone very close to her that while freaking out on drugs worked her over before Sgt. Brown arrived to rescue her. And for that good deed on Sgt. Brown's part he's now facing serious jail time.

****SPOILERS*** It takes a while for Chief Ironside to get all the facts in Barbara's death together and they all point to a fellow student that she was very much romantically involved with who like herself lived a double life as a clean cut "Joe Collage" type by day and an hairy and unkempt tripping out on drugs hippie by night. The final few minutes of this Ironside episode shows just what drugs, illegal as well as legal, can do to a persons mental as well as physical health. Completealy going wacko and out of control it takes some half dozen police officers including Sgt. Brown to subdue Barbara's strung out boyfriend who's on the verge of overdosing on lethal amounts of LSD. Now in police custody and exposed as the drug fiend that he is the guy together with "Freddie's Pad" flower child owner Freddie, Cliff Osmond, can spend the next few years behind bars at San Quentin prison studying, like the late Babrbara claimed that she did, the workings of the human mind which both have serious issues with.
