Sipowicz reports for the sergeant's exam and finds he is the oldest taker of the test. The detectives are on the scene of a death of the brother of a mentally disabled man. Medavoy makes small talk about the exam, which causes Sipowicz to leave with Clark and go up and talk with victim's brother Martin Schweiss. The interview with Martin doesn't go well; the brother thinks that his brother is with his girlfriend and he asks the detectives if they have any weed. Kathleen Halloran, the woman caring for the brother tells them what she knows about the victim's girlfriend, Elena Lozada, including the fact that the girlfriend they recently had a big fight with the victim about Martin. Jones and Medavoy are redirected to investigate an assault case. They arrive on the scene to find two tenants trying to move into the same apartment. They give Jones and Medavoy all the information they have on the man, Jerome King, who rented them the apartment, which the detectives are going to pursue. As for the tenants, neither will get the apartment, nor will any of the other tenants who just arrived on the scene to claim the apartment. Bale gets the status of the cases, and asks Sipowicz about the exam, but Sipowicz is reluctant to discuss it with anyone. Murphy and Ortiz talk with Elena Lozada and she tells them about the fights she had with her boyfriend about his brother Martin. She wanted Martin to be moved to group home, before they could start a life together. She also tells them about a neighborhood drug dealer named Ricky C. that the victim had a scuffle with. Back at the squad the detectives find out who this dealer is and Sipowicz and Clark are going to pick him up. A good looking realtor, Brigid Scofield, comes into the squad, which immediately gets Medavoy's attention, which is a good thing since she is looking to talk to him and Det. Jones. Normally she only deals in sales, but agreed to help Jerome King with this rental property. Jerome King, because he wasn't a US Citizen convinced her to forgo the usual credit check if he put up additional security, which is going to make her libel when the tenants decide to sue. After she leaves, Medavoy makes a comment to Jones that indicates he has a decided interest in Miss Scofield. Sipowicz and Clark grab Ricky Carson while he is conducting a sale. They get both Carson and his buyer. Jones and Medavoy are awaiting results of fingerprints found in the rental fraud apartment and are now leaving to pick up with the woman who had placed the ad for the apartment. Sipowicz and Clark are interviewing Ricky Carson, while Ortiz processes the buyer Bobby Halliday. Ricky Carson tells Sipowicz and Clark what explained himself to their victim about the business he was conducting with his brother "Ozone" (Martin). He indicates he would never result to violence to make a point; something his record will later validate. Bobby Halliday's father comes into the squad, he is worried about the affect going to central booking is going to have on his 17-year-old son, who in his mind is still "just a kid." The father asks the detectives "what's it gonna to take to make this go away." Lt. Bale invites the man into his office, where he cements a deal. Only the father doesn't know that Bale intends on getting IAB involved and when Bale wears a wire during their transaction the father is going to be arrested. The detectives think Bale is going overboard in his treatment of a man who was just trying to get his kid out of a bad situation. Bale gets wired up. Sipowicz tries to talk to him about his managerial style, but Bale throws Sipowicz's record and reputation back at him. Jones and Medavoy talk with Alyssa Pelican about her relationship with Jerome King. He used her computer to set up his apartment scam. They show her a picture, which she identifies as being Jerome King, but they tell her that it is Eddie Palm and they tell him about Eddie's past. She is in denial and doesn't want to cooperate with them any further, as a possible accessory to the crime they put her in the cage. Cort Halliday returns to the squad and Bale takes him into coffee room to conduct the deal, only Cort Halliday doesn't recall any discussion of bringing in $5000. Bale becomes outraged at this turn of events; he presses Halliday to tell him who got to him, "was it Sipowicz?" Halliday doesn't reveal who tipped him off. After he leaves, Bale goes back into the squad room and begins to go off on Sipowicz, who denies any knowledge of getting to Halliday. Clark points out to Bale that anyone could have warned Halliday. Alyssa Pelican is finally ready to talk and she tells them all about Jerome King's dealings and his ability to never pay for anything. She agrees to help them trap King. Word comes back the detectives from a neighbor that Martin and his brother had been fighting a lot recently. They also know that Martin's brother had found a group home to send his brother to in Poughkeepsie. They decide to bring him in for further questioning. Martin comes in with Kathleen Halloran, who reaffirms to Sipowicz that she was with Martin every minute yesterday. She is little worried that the detectives are planning to interview Martin on his own. Jones and Medavoy grab up "Jerome King," and Alyssa plants a well placed slap across his face. Sipowicz and Clark reinterview Martin, who tells them that Kathleen wasn't with him the entire time. They ask him if Kathleen asked him to lie; the only thing he tells them that she wanted him to lie about was their relationship. He admits to having hit his brother in the past, but was always sorry about it. Meanwhile, Jones and Medavoy begin their interview with "Jerome King," who, in light of all the evidence and witnesses they have, admits to really being Eddie Palm, just before a ten second countdown expires. He also tells them where they can find the money. Sipowicz and Clark go back to interview Kathleen, who admits to her relationship with Martin and admits to killing Martin's brother over the fact that he, was going to send Martin away, rather than let her care for him. Medavoy finds the real estate agent and informs her as to the status of the case; the good news is that most all of the money is going to be able to be returned to the tenants. He tries to make a little small talk and manages to get a drink invitation. After Bale goes home for the evening, John Irvin pulls out some anonymous flowers that were delivered to Ortiz. She admits to Sipowicz and Clark that she told Halliday about what Bale was planning to do. Social services arrives to take custody of Martin, and he asks Sipowicz, who he finally seems to recognize to accompany him.moreless
