**SPOILERS*** Another "Naked City" episode about a homicide that's solved by one of it's stars Det. Adam Flint, Paul Burke, by accident not hard nose detective work. That's in him having an altercation over a parking spot with a cab driver, Allen Rich, that cued Det. Flint into just how Mr. Binks, Louis Van Rooten, died: Over a parking spot or road rage incident that he in fact initiated. The person involved in Mr. Binks' death self pitying born loser and 41th vice president in charge of the mens washrooms at his Madison Ave advertising firm Jason Colwell, Robert Sterling. that's when Colwell got himself hot under the collar when Mr. Binks tried to muscle into a parking spot that he was backing his car into.

Even though it was self-defense Colwell acted as if he murdered the much older Mr. Binks and tried to get his secretary and girlfriend Libby Kingston,Nancy Malone, to cover up his crime by promising to marry her so she can't testify against him in court! It's later when Colwell uninvited attended Mr. Binks' funeral that he had got second thoughts after expressing his sympathies to Binks' 24 year old son Victor played a very youthful looking Jon Voight looking like little Opy Taylor of the Andy Griffith Show. That's when he's told by Victor that he would like to get his hands on his dad's killer before the police did.

***SPOILERS*** Now wanting to pay for what he did but not letting the police know about it Colwell goes out into the worst neighborhoods in the city and picks or gets involved in fights with local hooligans hoping he'll end up having himself killed by them! Black and blue from a number of beating he took but still alive and kicking Colwell finally decides to go see Victor hoping that he'll keep his promise in killing the guy responsible for killing his dad which of course is himself! With an outraged and disgusted, in what a sorry a** he is, Victor refines himself to as much as lay a hand on him which has Colwell finally see the light and turn himself over to the police. But not without the help of his girlfriend Libby who, in seeing just how her crazy and suicidal boyfriend was slowly killing himself, got to them first!
