Against the advice of his wife Grace, Joe Bradshaw joins Tom and Charlie Fowler for an afternoon of bowling. Grace's instincts prove prophetic when Joe finds himself an innocent bystander as the Fowlers rob Mac Benson's roadside diner. Joe flees the scene in their car, leaving Charlie Fowler to be shot and critically wounded by the dying Benson. Joe knows that he will be pursued by the vengeful Tom Fowler and is mistakenly convinced that he is a wanted man. He is eventually forced to shoot Tom Fowler in order to protect Grace and he then makes armed threats against Dan Mathews and his officers. Dan must use guile and psychology to prevent the heretofore innocent Joe from actually committing the most egregious of crimes. Written by Sam Spear

Did You Know?


[first lines]
Narrator: The law enforcement officer's problem is not always the hardened criminal. Frequently it is the good element of society that forces him to spend long hours in toil and grief, especially when that element is guided by fear. Joseph Bradshaw was one such man who, by making the wrong decision, triggered a series of events which led to serious compilations.

A young married man hangs out with a couple of disreputable brothers. He stays in the car while the brothers (supposedly) go into a corner store to buy cigarettes. They soon come out shooting a gun with the owner shooting back. The young man flees. One of the brothers has been shot and soon captured by the police. The other brother vows to kill the innocent young man who fled (well, they were shooting at him). The young man's wife tries to convince her husband to turn himself in but he's afraid that the police won't believe that he had no part in the robbery. The wife even goes and talks to Crawford about a "hypothetical" situation whereby an innocent man is at a robbery. My favorite part of this show was when they were trying to track down the identity of the innocent young man. The cops knew that there was a third person with the brothers because they found their car. They find three pairs of bowling shoes in the car. Crawford asks his colleagues "Where would three men be going on a Sunday afternoon?" The answer? "Bowling." Can you imagine - a time when football was not king of Sunday afternoon? I didn't miss a Kansas City Chiefs game on television from 1965-1972 and now follow the Buffalo Bills, but even so, it is refreshing to recall a time in which such a participatory activity as bowling was more popular than football. At the end of this show Crawford reminds us "To leave blood at the Red Cross, not the highway."
