Officer Tommy Bates, a close friend of Monahan's, is accused of killing a young car thief who goes berserk after crashing into Bate's police car. Although the signs point to the young man being under the influence of PCP, there is no trace of it in his blood. Unfortunately, things take a turn for the worst when Monahan is suspended for roughing up the young man's accomplice prompting a lawsuit by lawyer Charlie Trusdale, the head of a civil rights organization. However, Quincy finds out that the young man was a chronic user of the drug and thinks that he was experiencing a delayed reaction to all the years of abuse of the drug. Quince also suspects that he might have been responsible for the horrific murder of a butcher the morning of the attack.
