Three thugs try to rob a C store in Georgetown, but a homeless former SEAL (and former MIA and POW) intervenes and kills them; he runs and seeks refuge inside a nearby church building while Bud prays there. A large number of local hotshot hyperactive cops surround them; Bud calls Harm, then Harm and Mac rush to the scene and render help. Harm joins Bud and the SEAL, Bauwer, on the inside. After the resolution of the standoff, Bauwer stands criminal charges in a civilian court, where Harm defends him. Harm suspects the presence of an unknown witness, and Bud finds him; the witness proves to be a double surprise indeed. After courtroom hijinks the jury finds Bauwer to be not guilty.
