Plot Overview

An ice cream truck driver who commandeers Bonnie's radio after an accident and radios for help turns out to be a former colleague of Jon and Ponch, an ex-CHP Sergeant who went to prison for stealing drugs from the supply room and is now trying to redeem himself by helping the officers nail a gang of truck hijackers. Jon and Ponch trail him, hoping to help him out if he gets in over his head. At the precinct, a skunk gets into the motor pool area, adding its distinctive aroma to vehicles and humans alike.
