Deputy Rick Lee of the Brevard County Sheriff’s Office patrols an apartment complex with a history of shots fired & drug calls. He quickly spots a vehicle driving across a grassy area that is not a designated road with his headlights off. The driver explains that he has a license, but the "Sheriff" has his license. The front seat passenger tells Deputy Lee that he was trying to get home and does not have any identification. The backseat passenger gives his name as well. A K-9 unit shows up and Deputy Lee decides to take the men out of the vehicle because he smelled marijuana in the car. The front seat passenger gets out of the car and immediately attempts to run from the deputy during the pat down. After a brief struggle with the man, the deputy takes him into custody and finds a small baggie of marijuana in his pants. The driver of the vehicle complains about the circumstances of his friend's arrest and tells the deputies his friend is a 'jitterbug'. The driver is given a warning for the equipment violation and is cut loose. The passenger that tried to run tells deputies he feels dumb for trying to run.
Deputy Robert Wiggs of the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department responds to a domestic violence call. The male suspect has been arrested before and is a known ‘runner’. The deputies arrive on scene and begin to search the property in search of the man. He is eventually found hiding underneath of a boat. In addition to the DV call, the man has a warrant for child endangerment. The suspect tells deputies that if he had a gun he could have easily shot them during the hunt. Deputies find a meth pipe in the man’s sock during the arrest. The suspect explains that the reason he was at the property was that his ex-wife invited him over so that she could have him arrested.
Officer Cesar Garcia of the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department is dispatched to an RV park for a domestic disturbance call. The female party is outside of the home and gladly shows off her bloodied lips to officers as they arrive. Her boyfriend (and the father of their 3 year daughter) steps from the RV with a bloody head wound and tells officers he received the wounds when the female hit him in the head with a glass object. The woman claims she was defending herself but her story in inconsistent.
