Did you arrest Viktor?

Me? No, it was a couple

of our patrolmen.


Right near his hotel, actually,

The Garvin.

Yeah, it's a breeding ground

for pushers, pimps, prostitutes.

- You know, anybody...

- Take me there.

We got you booked

at the Executive House.

Please. Garvin.

You sure you wanna stay here?

It's the pits. You have a choice.

I stay here.

- If you're on a budget I can talk to my...

- Thank you.

- I will be fine.

- Okay.

You're the boss.

I'll pick you up around

00 in the morning, okay?

Hey, nice talking to you, captain.

- What do you think, Art?

- I think he's a jerk.

- Danko.

- You're welcome.

Put your name in the big book

right there.

You had man here called Rosta.

Viktor Rosta.

- A Russian?

- Soviet.

I want same room.

Are you Russian too?

Nice going.

It's 302.

Right up the stairs.


And this is our booking area.

Looks like a major crime wave

just hit, right?

When I first walked in here when

they assigned me to this district...

...I thought all hell had broken loose.


It was just a typical Monday morning.

Is that a Russian cop uniform?

Looks like a glorified postman

or something out of World War Two.

- Be respectful to our guest, Audrey.

- Yes, sir.

Not king.

Checkmate in two moves.

Use bishop to queen four.

Thanks for your advice, comrade,

but I think I got it covered.

This way, captain.

The nerve of that guy.

Captain Danko, Moscow Militia.

This is Commander Donnelly,

chief of this district.

Thanks, Tom. The captain

will be with you in a minute.

This is an extradition order.

All it requires is your signature.

He ran a red light.

Didn't have a valid driver's license.

Arresting officer found a gun

in his glove box, brought him in.

We shook him down.

Then he refused to speak English.
