He busts inside Mike’s room and finds him packing a bag. He tells that the police thought he raped a girl and that they slammed him against the patrol car. He ran before they could make an arrest. He flashes a gun and Nick tells him to lose the gun before the cops get there. The police enter and Nick grabs the gun. He gives it to the police and tells that he is a lawyer. They take Mike into custody. Nick and Lisa meet with Mike and he has cuts on his face. Mike tells the guard that if his client has any more cuts, he is going to go after everyone’s badges.
