But Justin wants to be a full fledged member of the team, and Dog has a fugitive that will his test case. Solomon Fuller is a long-line fisherman working on a boat called the "Blue Sky" who has failed to appear in court on assault charges. So the team heads to the marina, and Justin is told that he is to take the lead in the arrest - to go into the water if he has to... A tense search at the marina takes Dog and the team to the Blue Sky and then the parks nearby. A tip from a Samoan local leads them to Solomon, who is smoking "ice" with a friend in a car. After a tense confrontation Justin gets Solomon into cuffs with help from Tim, and they hustle him into the back to the office to do paperwork.

After Solomon is safely in jail, the team reconvenes at the office to decide if Justin did enough on the bust to warrant a promotion. Dog calls for a vote, and with a unanimous verdict, Justin gets his promotion, a souvenir wanted poster, and is brought to tears.
