Crockett and Tubbs are working with Customs Agent Frank Arriola to get a criminal, whom Frank once arrested but walked because of a technicality. Frank's brother Tico a Jai Alai player goes to a brothel and the girl he's with provokes him into getting rough with her. He thinks he killed her but didn't. The madame who's connected to the criminal Frank is trying to get calls him and shows him the tape of Tico "killing" the girl. That's when she and the criminal tell Frank that he should tell of them of any operation against him and he reveals Crockett and Tubbs are cops.
