Episode Summary

Across the Line

During a long stakeout of an anticipated armed robbery, an officer leaves his post at the probable getaway location without permission to buy a beer, just as the robbery is taking place. He returns just in time to confront what he thinks is the speeding getaway vehicle trying to run him down, and shoots the driver square in the forehead. However, since he was inexcusably out of radio contact, he failed to hear the announcement that the driver is actually a woman who has been taken hostage during the robbery, making it appear to be a clear cut case of excessive force and possibly murder. The officer turns to a skeptical Quincy to use his forensic skills to defend him at the trial board and prove that the shooting was justified.
