Blue Bloods s03e21 Episode Script

Devil's Breath

Come on, let's grab a bite.
I can't.
Got to work in the morning.
Party pooper.
Be safe.
Don't move! I'll shoot you! I am not playing around here! Give me the cash! Now! Now! You two, back up! Let's go! Hurry up! Move, stupid bitch! I-I know.
I know, Ma.
I will.
I promise, I will.
I love you, too, Ma.
I love you.
Bye.
I swear, not a word.
Hey, I like hearing you talking to your mother.
She's probably the only woman you don't lie to.
Except about my tour.
I tell her we work days, 'cause she always said nothing good happens after midnight.
shots fired, corner of three-three and Broadway.
Like she said, nothing good happens after midnight.
Police! Don't move! Put the gun down! Put it down! Nobody's been hurt yet.
Be smart! Shut up! Shut up! What are we looking at here? Guy's covered in blood.
Says he has no idea where the blood came from.
You give him a toss? Yeah.
Any weapons on him? No.
Nothing, huh? Okay.
Thanks.
We got it.
Sir? You hurt, sir? Hmm? You hurt? I don't know.
I don't think so.
Where'd the blood on your shirt come from? Oh, my God.
What happened? You got any I.
D.
on you, sir? Hey.
Where you live? In Bloomingvalley, sir.
Blooming what? It's in Pennsylvania, sir.
I just got here yesterday.
And you don't know how your shirt got full of blood? No, ma'am.
I I-I don't feel so well right now.
We'll get you checked out at the E.
R.
Why don't you get on your feet, okay? Come on.
What's the last thing you remember? Um uh, being at my hotel.
Which one? It's the, um the Camelot Hotel.
Oh, right there.
Good.
Let's take a little walk.
Come on.
Come on.
I got him.
Come on.
Nice, work, brother.
It happened so fast.
What, did you have a few? Uh, I just came out of a retirement party.
Had a couple beers.
All right, don't say another word.
You got to get a breath mint or something.
Here.
Take two of these.
What was that about? What's that, boss? What was that about? Nothing.
Nothing? Officer Grasso, you the first one on the scene? Yes, he was, sir.
Collared the gunman with no shots fired.
Are you his spokesperson, Officer Reagan? No, um I was walking by, I heard the shot.
What are the mints for? Have you been drinking, Officer? Uh, maybe I better call my PBA rep.
This is Lieutenant John Vance.
Want to make notification and request IAB respond to Broadway and East three-three to administer a Breathalyzer.
Right.
Boss, what are you doing? He was off duty.
He didn't even fire his weapon.
I'm following procedure.
What are you doing, Officer Reagan? Are you questioning me? 'Cause I don't see any captain bars on that collar.
No, boss.
I didn't think so.
Gone, but not forgotten.
About a half an half hour ago, an off-duty police officer on his way home from a party apprehended an armed robber.
Fatalities? No.
And the officer didn't fire his gun.
Good for him.
There's something else.
We have a situation.
I'm on my way.
How long you in town? Only here for a few nights.
I'm here for a vintage auto show.
You in the car business? I restore classic cars.
My dealer's here in the city.
Oh, my God.
Oh, my God! Hey! Oh, my God.
Come here.
Oh, my God.
Come here.
Give me your hands.
Who is she? She's my girlfriend.
I came to New York to ask her to marry me.
Well, I'm assuming she said no.
You want to tell us what the hell happened here? Huh?! I I don't know.
I don't remember.
I don't know.
"Boozed up NYPD cop pulls gun in robbery standoff.
" I saw it.
Officer Grasso blew a point zero eight on the Breathalyzer.
He was intoxicated.
I saw it.
It's borderline.
Sir, I know Officer Grasso.
He's a good cop.
That's all, Baker.
Yes, sir.
If he'd been driving a car, he would have been arrested and charged with DWI.
He wasn't driving a car.
He was off duty and over the legal limit when he pulled his gun.
Did you have a drink last night, Garrett? What do you think? Were you armed? Don't ask.
The Citizens for Police Accountability are all over this.
They're already citing the patrol guide, Frank.
I didn't write the patrol guide.
"All members must be fit for duty at all times, "except when on sick report.
"Members may not consume intoxicants to the extent members become unfit for duty.
" Do you need something from me, Garrett? The mayor's not holding a press conference.
He's leaving it up to you.
Of course he is.
And according to Officer Grasso's PBA rep, he's gonna fight any charges, which means a department hearing.
I suggest you let it go through the proper channels.
Let it go through the proper channels.
I don't do drugs.
And I-I really don't understand what's going on here.
Well, that makes three of us, Mr.
Carter.
Did you see Madeline last night? We were supposed to meet at 10:00.
Uh, she was running late.
You said you were gonna propose to her.
Did you? I-I don't know.
What happened to the engagement ring? I don't remember.
What do you remember? I remember waiting for her.
I I had a couple drinks.
And then, uh, this woman came up.
She asked me if she could sit with me.
No, no.
It's-it's not what you're thinking.
Oh, yeah, what are we thinking? I told her right off the bat that I was waiting for my girlfriend.
She just didn't want to be alone, she didn't want anybody hitting on her.
So, I was like, "Yeah, sure.
" So I don't I don't remember anything after that.
What did she look like? Um, she was blonde, in her 20s.
She have a name? Lacy.
Did you and Lacy do drugs together? Oh, my God, this is so crazy.
I don't I don't do drugs, and I love Maddie.
I-I don't remember what happened, please.
Yeah, we get that part.
Unfortunately for you, we can't file charges until we complete our investigation.
Charges for what? Murder, for starters.
Murder? Yeah.
With a shirt full of blood, a dead body in your room and no memory of where you were last night, it's not looking so good for you.
Keep us informed of your whereabouts.
I'll do whatever.
Just, please Just find out who did this.
Don't leave the city.
You ready? No, I'm not.
What's wrong? That was your principal.
She wants to see me.
What's that about? I don't know.
Why didn't you just ask her? I did.
She said that she was gonna tell me when I get there.
Come on, Mom.
I'm a straight A student.
What makes you think it's something bad? I spent 12 years at Catholic school.
There is no way the principal is calling me at 7:30 in the morning to request a meeting to tell me you're an A student.
He's got the greatest defense ever: "I don't remember"" He remembers a blonde named Lacy asking to sit with him.
He doesn't remember killing his own girlfriend? Maybe because he didn't.
You actually believe this guy? I didn't say he didn't kill her.
I'm just saying, I believe he doesn't remember what happened.
But even if I he drank too much and blacked out, he's still responsible.
Wow.
You know, I've never seen you this skeptical before, Baez.
Boy meets girl, girl rejects boy, boy kills girl.
It's a textbook case.
He proposed, and she turned him down.
So, why does boy give up his shirt and agree to a swab? Because he's trying to appear cooperative.
A cooperative killer.
Wow.
You know, that's something we don't see every day.
How about we try to find this Lacy girl, okay? If she even exists.
Hey, what's up? Baker said you took off early.
What's with the monkey suit? The mayor's awards for arts and culture.
What's with the small talk? Same situation, I think I would've done exactly what he did, Dad.
I probably would, too.
You think he should be punished? As a cop, I think he should get a medal.
As commissioner I-I have to testify at the departmental hearing.
Just tell the truth.
Grasso didn't even fire his weapon that night.
There was no need for that Breathalyzer test.
It's not mandatory, but a boss can ask for one.
Yeah, well, he's just a hard-ass.
People have been known to say the same thing about me.
Vance only asked for that Breathalyzer because of me.
He saw the name on my name plate and I think that I drew attention to Grasso.
If you're a Reagan, that goes with the job, too.
You think he should lose his job.
I think he did the right thing, no matter the consequences.
That's what you need to do when you testify.
And that's what I need to do as commissioner.
This is a copy of an e-mail that Nicky sent out yesterday morning, trying to rally students to participate in a sit-in.
Protesting locker searches without student's consent? Which I'm sure you're aware of, as an attorney, is perfectly legal.
Right, but the issue here is not whether it's legal, Ms.
Pender, but whether it's necessary to do so.
Last week, we confiscated a pack of cigarettes from a senior's locker.
He's been suspended.
Seems a bit harsh.
I just think we need to keep in mind who we're talking about here.
I mean, Nicky is an exceptional student.
She's active in the student council.
She's never had a disciplinary action brought against Which is exactly why I called you.
Hoping that we could find a way to preserve her good record.
'Kay.
How do we do that? Nicky calls off the sit-in.
And she apologizes.
And if that doesn't happen? I would have no choice but to suspend her.
Scotch and soda.
He was here last night.
What could you tell me about him? Guy was pretty wasted to me.
Was there a woman hanging around with him at all? Blonde hottie.
This blonde hottie have a name? Chardonnay.
Chardonnay? But other than what she was drinking, I don't know what to tell you.
Right.
Was the woman coming on to him at all? I'd-I'd call it mutual.
You know, looked like they were hitting it off.
They left together.
What time? Just after 11:00.
All right.
I'm gonna need the, uh, footage from that security camera up there.
There's Carter going to the bathroom.
All right, looks like she's getting something out of her purse.
Come on.
She could be slipping something in his drink.
Yeah, but you can't tell from there.
How about the other hotel security video? They got any footage of him going back up to the room? Only Madeline going up.
I got Carter coming down around midnight, but his jacket's closed, so you can't see his shirt.
But he's alone.
Great.
How about the service elevator? We can't check that.
There's no cameras in it.
So, in other words, we got squat.
Maybe he went upstairs with the hottie to have sex, and Madeline arrives, but he's not in the hotel bar, so she goes up to his room, catches them, a fight ensues, he kills her.
So, the hottie just stands there while he kills a girl and doesn't call 911? Because she's a pros.
Still could've called 911.
Serology report is back.
The blood on his shirt is a match to his girlfriend.
What about drugs? He had scopolamine in his system.
The zombie drug.
Zombie drug? What are you talking about? Yeah, we came across this when I was in vice.
It comes from Venezuela.
The drug makes you lose your free will, do crazy stuff, and at the same time, it wipes your memory.
Kind of like roofies? Yeah, only worse.
There's cases down in South America where people wake up beaten to a pulp, with no valuables, and the victims remember nothing.
So, he could've killed his girlfriend and not even know it? Yeah.
And that's where its street name comes from.
Which is? Devil's breath.
Devil's breath.
I just met a very nice young woman outside whose last name is Grasso.
Could it be a coincidence? Do you think it's wise to meet with Officer Grasso's wife? I don't always do what's wise, Garrett.
I have 45 unanswered calls and e-mails asking your position.
Ignore them.
You know I can't do that.
So, I guess it's "No comment at this time"? I'll see her now, Baker.
Is there some reason you do this? Seeing her will just make it harder.
It's supposed to be hard.
Sir, Mrs.
Grasso.
Thanks.
Yeah.
Hello.
Please, sit down.
Thank you for seeing me.
Sure.
Peter doesn't know I'm here.
He's been on the job for seven years now.
He's a good cop.
A good father.
I know that, Mrs.
Grasso.
My husband put the welfare of other people above his own, Commissioner.
He saved those people's lives.
And instead of getting a medal for being a hero, he's being put on trial.
I know how these departmental hearings work.
The cops never win.
Judge Keller is fair.
You think she's not going to pay attention to the papers that are calling my husband a drunk? Saying that cops shouldn't be above the law? Commissioner, I notice that in all of these news stories, there's not one comment from you.
And I'd really like to know why.
When we got there, Officer Grasso had the scene under control.
He had subdued Mr.
Nathan without incident, and the victims were no longer in danger.
No longer in danger from Mr.
Nathan or from Officer Grasso? Objection.
Withdrawn.
You smelled alcohol on Officer Grasso's breath, correct? Officer Grasso was off duty, and when we arrived at the scene I'm sorry.
We're not here for your commentary.
Did you or did you not smell alcohol on Officer Grasso's breath? Well Yes or no? Yes.
And did you try to give him breath mints to cover up the fact that you smelled alcohol on him? Permission to treat Officer Reagan as a hostile witness? Permission granted.
Officer Reagan, didn't you take a pack of breath mints from the counter of the deli? Yes.
And the purpose was to give them to Officer Grasso, correct? Was the purpose to give them to Officer Grasso? Answer the question, Officer.
Yes, Your Honor.
To mask the smell of alcohol? Yes.
No further questions, Your Honor.
You know, I'd be willing to bet this isn't the first time that Lacy pulled off this little stunt.
You know, drop a little devil's breath in a guy's drink, then go upstairs and clean him out.
Hey, easy payday, and you don't even have to have sex.
Yeah, that would explain where his credit cards went.
She took them.
Or he gave them to her.
Did you run the, uh, hotel, see if there were any complaints filed there? Yeah, I just did.
Three complaints in the past two months from men saying they were drugged and/or robbed.
Probably the only three brave enough to come forward.
Almost all of them are from out of town.
Welcome to New York.
Wait, you said almost all of them are from out of town.
One of them's a New Yorker? Yeah, one guy, Richard Young, Well, let's go see if his memory's better than Mr.
Carter's.
I don't know why you're making this such a big deal, Mom.
When the principal starts talking about suspension, it's a very big deal.
And there are other ways to get the administration's attention, Nicky.
I have a great way.
Why don't I just start bringing drugs into school? You know what I don't get? You always taught me to fight for what I believe in, to fight to make the world the place I want it to be, and now that I'm putting that into practice, you want me to stop.
I also taught you to respect authority.
I've been very respectful, Mom.
I even went to Mrs.
Pender's office today to ask if we could have a town hall meeting, so that the students and the administration could have their say.
Well, see, that's a great idea.
And she shut me down completely.
She said if I continued the protest, I'm not just gonna be suspended, she'll make sure I get kicked out of school.
Wait, she said that? Yeah, she did.
But the one thing I can't understand is how the one person who always encouraged me to have convictions and stand up for what I believe in is now being so critical.
Mr.
Young, I'm Detective Reagan.
This is Detective Baez.
We wanted to ask you some questions about a complaint you filed while you were staying at the Camelot Hotel earlier this year.
Yeah.
My wife is inside.
Um, we don't want to get you in trouble with the missus.
So, why don't we go talk over here, okay? Yeah, sounds good.
We just need your help identifying a woman who's been targeting men at bars, stealing their personal belongings.
Is that what happened to you? She took $800 from me.
And all of my credit cards.
'Kay, who is this "she"? Lacy.
I didn't didn't get a last name.
Is this her? Oh, my God.
Yeah.
Yeah.
That's-that's Lacy.
Okay.
So, she approached you at the hotel bar.
Is that what happened? Uh, no.
We we met at a-a strip club a couple blocks away, and then we, um we walked back to the hotel.
We went upstairs and opened up the bar, and I made us both a drink, and after that, I don't remember a damn thing.
I woke up, and everything was gone.
What was the name of the strip club? Scores.
She works there? She a dancer? She was that night.
I'll bet.
Thanks for your time.
This concludes the proceedings.
Hey, Pete.
Uh about my testimony back there, I wasn't trying to It's all right.
I know how these things work.
Well, I wish I could've just said what I think, which is that you did the right thing.
I know, I know.
I'm sorry you're going through all this.
Me, too.
That night Makes me wish I would've just kept walking.
Excuse me.
Yeah? Where's your owner? Excuse me.
Detective Reagan.
This is Detective Baez.
You the owner? Something tells me you're not here for a lap dance.
You recognize her? Lacy.
How about her real name? Jennifer Riley.
What did she do now? What do you mean, "What did she do now"? Look, I'll tell you something right now, I never bought any of those stolen credit cards.
Well, that's lucky for you then.
That's not why you're here.
Where can we find her? She's in the dressing room.
Look, she's going on in half an hour.
Well, think you're gonna have to find a backup dancer.
Why don't you take us over to the dressing room, okay? Right this way.
That's her locker.
She was right here a minute ago.
Where's your back door? Through this door.
Hey! Hold it! Hold it! Police! Hey! Stop the car.
Come on.
Let's go.
Get out! What? Hands against the vehicle.
Right now! Cuff her.
I got it.
Jennifer Riley, you're under arrest.
What for? I didn't do anything.
So, night on the town turns into a dead body, huh? You got some explaining to do, hot stuff.
Let's go.
I didn't drug anyone.
And he gave me his credit cards.
Why? Because he was impressed with your dancing abilities? Ms.
Reagan.
Criminal possession of stolen property is a felony-- four years.
Murder in the second degree is Oh, please.
Come on.
You can't pin a murder on me.
Either way, you're looking at jail time for possession.
Is that true? I didn't murder that woman.
But if you want to talk deal, I might be able to tell you who did.
Not another word.
Criminal possession in the third degree.
Criminal possession in the fifth.
That's a misdemeanor.
Yeah, and she's giving you a murder conviction.
Is it an eyewitness testimony, and is she going to testify? Yes.
Start talking.
The deal expires in five minutes.
I started talking to Robert at the bar.
He asked me to take a walk because he wanted uh, to get some cash at an ATM.
Why? Honey, when a man wants to take money at an ATM and spend it on me, I don't usually ask why.
We walked back to his hotel, and we went up, um to his room.
For what purpose? To hang out, to have a drink.
And then his girlfriend showed up.
She was she was really pissed off.
She started accusing him of cheating on her, of standing her up, and she started yelling and she was pushing him.
And he pulled out a knife, and he stabbed her to death.
So you witnessed him kill this girl? And what'd you do? I just got out of there as fast as I could.
You didn't think to notify the hotel security or call 911 to report it? No.
Because I thought you would pin this on me.
Which is pretty much what happened, right? All I see is a typical guy who got suckered by a pretty face, ended up killing his girlfriend.
He's probably gonna blame it on the drugs.
Be nice if they had a drug that could make us forget certain things.
Like what? Every dead body I've ever seen at a crime scene.
I rebuilt the old stock parts, so the numbers match.
All the original miles.
Back at work already, huh, Mr.
Carter? Uh, actually, I just wanted to sign over my inventory.
I just want to go home.
Well, unfortunately that's not happening today.
Did you find out anything? Found out you killed your girlfriend.
What? Turn around, please.
- N No, no, no.
- Come on.
Turn around.
We got an eyewitness.
Oh, my God.
Oh, my God.
I'm sorry.
So are we.
Let's go.
Bless these gifts which we are about to receive through Christ, our Lord.
Amen.
Amen.
Good job, Sean.
When we say grace in school, our teacher makes us tell everyone what we're grateful for.
What are you grateful for? I'm grateful that I'm a better kicker than Austin Jenner in soccer, even though it's his fault my arm's in a sling.
I'm grateful that Linda made her scalloped potatoes, 'cause I'm tired of eating healthy.
Anyone else? Wow.
Has everybody had that bad of a week? Guess I should be grateful I'm not Peter Grasso.
Yeah, no good deed goes unpunished.
What do you think the departmental hearing will find? That he's guilty of violating procedure.
Because he had a couple drinks at a retirement party? No, because he blew a point zero eight.
Wait, so let me get this straight.
This guy is being charged by the NYPD, not the D.
A.
's office? - Yeah.
- Exactly.
For doing what he was trained to do.
You draw your weapon, you better be stone-cold sober.
It is not the commissioner's job to pick or choose when to enforce the guidelines.
Personally, I think it's a good rule.
And cops shouldn't carry guns if they know they're gonna be drinking.
Well, it's not quite that simple, Nicky.
What? He could've just called it in and waited for help, right? So you're advocating that people follow the rules that are laid out for them? Look, it's true he could've just called it in and waited, but it's also true that if he did, three civilians might have been dead.
Let's say you had a couple of glasses of wine with dinner, and then on your way home with your best friend, who's driving, he has a heart attack.
Do you jump behind the wheel and take him to an E.
R.
, or do you wait for help to come? I can't deal in what-ifs.
It's a judgment call.
Unless you're a cop.
And then the judgments are made for you.
That's right.
There's no other job on earth where you got to be fit for duty whether you're working work or not.
Yeah, if Grasso was a regular civilian, probably never would've ended up on the front page.
Sure he would have.
It just would've said "Good Samaritan" instead of "Drunk Cop.
" You're sitting in my chair.
Where's Norma Rae? Beating Pop at poker.
I thought sitting in your chair would inspire me with wisdom.
It's not working.
How does it feel going from rebel to disciplinarian? I was never a rebel.
Sister Margaret Mary.
I was never suspended.
Only because your mom went to see her and fought for you.
Really? Yeah.
Really.
Don't tell me you're taking Nicky's side here.
I'm not taking sides.
But you are raising a pretty good kid.
I just don't think she realizes how a disciplinary action is gonna look on her record.
Or what if it affects her getting into college? What-ifs are unknowable; you should decide on the merits.
So should you, Dad.
You look like you've been here a while.
Since 4:00 a.
m.
You could use that more than me.
Yeah.
The Carter case, isn't it? Yeah.
I knew you weren't gonna let that go.
Call me crazy, but eh, I believe the kid.
I mean, don't you need a reason to kill somebody that you're about to propose to? According to Jennifer, it was heat of the moment.
We've seen that before.
That girl-- I'm sorry-- her statement is not enough for me.
It's not enough to put that kid away for 25 years to life.
And until I know exactly what the hell happened in that room, I'm not gonna do it.
Okay.
So? So those three other complaints-- the guys who were drugged and robbed-- what if she had help? What if she didn't do it alone? You're right.
I'll go over the 61s again.
I'm gonna head back to that strip club and see if there's something we missed.
Hey.
Thank you.
Detective, you're back.
Yeah, I just wanted to take a second look around.
Oh, yeah, no, I bet you did.
What? In fact, if you want a lap dance or No, that's not what I-- No, no, no, no.
I just want to take a second look around the dressing room.
Oh.
Go right ahead.
We got nothing to hide around here.
Great.
This one? Mm-hmm.
"I am a money magnet.
"My income is constantly increasing.
Money comes to me frequently and easily.
" What the hell does that mean? It's the stripper's creed.
Oh.
Problem with Lacy, if it doesn't come to her, she takes it.
Good to know.
Do you mind opening this? Thank you.
Voilà.
Son of a bitch.
Baez.
You're never gonna guess who Lacy is cozy with.
Oh, I think we found our common denominator: the bartender from Carter's hotel bar.
Okay, think we got it.
Thank you.
Thank you, kids.
Congrats.
We hope the Police Sports League can fund new programs with that.
Thank you.
You bet.
Thank you.
Judge Keller is recommending termination of Officer Grasso.
And the press are looking for a comment from you.
I want a press conference.
There's really no need for a press I didn't say there was a need; I said a want one.
The cops are unhappy, the mayor's happy.
I think you're really better off letting things lie, Frank.
I also want a copy of Judge Keller's opinion.
I need to know what you're gonna say.
So do I.
We will fight for student rights! We will fight for student rights! We will fight for student rights! We will fight for student rights! We will fight for student rights! Students of Blessed Heart who do not disperse immediately will be suspended indefinitely, and face disciplinary action.
I repeat, students of Blessed Heart who do not disperse immediately will be suspended indefinitely and Isn't that your mom? Yeah.
What's she doing? I don't know.
You have a pretty good turnout.
What did you say to Mrs.
Pender? Well, I just told her what you would have said if you went to law school.
That a peaceful protest after school hours and not on school property is actually protected by the First Amendment.
So they can't suspend us? No.
Not that I want you to make a habit of this.
No, I know, I get it, but Wow.
"Wow"? That was just really cool, Mom.
"Cool"? Well, I have not been cool in a very long time.
I'm gonna savor this moment.
Well, the way I understand it, I'm really just a chip off the old block.
Grandpa told me how you started a petition to allow girls on the boys' soccer team when you were in high school.
Absolutely nothing is sacred in this family.
Oh, I'm sorry.
Am I interrupting? Maybe we'll try the radio room instead.
Come on.
What is this about? I'll escort Ms.
Salazar.
You can take Jennifer's statement.
What statement? Jennifer's been released.
Well, how would you know? Don't you only know her as "Chardonnay"? Go ahead.
Go.
Well, you look a little concerned, Jennifer.
Or is it, uh, Lacy? Or Chardonnay? What's wrong? You concerned that your, uh, girlfriend out there is gonna flip on you? Hmm? I-I don't know what you're talking about.
Detective, my client has made a deal.
Your client had a deal.
That was until we discovered that her and her girlfriend were running a robbery ring.
Thing is, these guys that you rob they're cheaters.
Right? I mean, they're guys stepping out on their wives and girlfriends, so who the hell cares if you victimize them? But Robert Carter-- he was an exception.
He was a good guy.
He was at that hotel not to hook up with somebody, he was there to propose to his girlfriend.
He even got her an engagement ring.
If you're not charging my client, we're leaving.
You can leave if you want to, but I'd get used to this place, 'cause you will be back.
You threatening us? I don't make threats, but I'll promise you this.
I will sit down with Robert Carter, and I will tell him exactly what the hell happened to his fiancée, and I will not rest until I do.
Yeah? I can't crack her; she wants a lawyer.
Okay.
Well, this one doesn't know that.
Okay, great, Detective.
Why don't you go back, finish up her statement, then we'll wrap this up.
Well, what do you know.
Looks like your time is up there, uh, Lacy.
Seems your girlfriend is more interested in saving her own ass than she is in saving yours.
You're lying.
No, I'm not.
I don't think she's lying either.
By the way that is a lovely engagement ring you got there.
Where'd you get it? 'Cause I have a buddy who just lost one.
No! We just wanted his money.
We had no idea his girlfriend would show up.
So what happened when she did? Don't answer! That bitch was gonna call the cops on us.
"That bitch.
" How you doing, Robert? I don't know.
Well, if it helps at all, it was the bartender that killed Madeline.
We know it wasn't you.
Soon as they finish your paperwork, you'll be free to go, and try to put this all behind you.
I-I guess it's supposed to make me feel better, right? But, uh I don't feel anything, Detective.
Except the same pit in my stomach, because I'll never see her again, I'll never talk to her again, I never told her how important she was to me, and now I'll never get that chance.
Robert you held her in your arms while she was dying.
That's how you got the blood all over your clothes.
And given the circumstances, I'd say there's nothing more you could've done at that point.
Because of you, she didn't die alone.
In regard to the incident involving Officer Peter Grasso, Judge Keller has concluded the departmental hearing with a guilty verdict and a recommendation for termination.
As the New York City Police Commissioner, I can exercise discretion and amend or overturn this decision.
Officer Grasso will not be pardoned.
There is no disputing he was over the legal limit when he chose to act.
He did the right thing, for the right reasons, at the right time, under unfortunate circumstances.
And it is hard for this commissioner to understand how our city would have been better served had he simply called 911 and moved on.
He made a mistake, but Peter Grasso is the kind of police officer I want to serve with.
He will be given a 30-day suspension and a one-year probation.
But he will keep his job.
Will this decision involve changing NYPD policy, Commissioner? What are you gonna do now, Frank? I'm gonna go home and have a drink.
