AIRDATE: 01.08.83


WHAT SAID:  

Concern for a teen-ager in trouble leads Romano and Hooker to a gang of thieves selling stolen liquor to high-school students.

SYNOPSIS:  

Matt King, a 16 year old computer expert, reluctantly scores a few bottles of stolen liquor from some of his teenage friends. While driving around, they collide with a truck, leaving two members of the group dead. Matt, hearing the police siren, heads home. At the hospital, Romano discovers Matt's I.D. picture among some of the things left at the crash site. He is upset because Matt's father was a friend of his in Vietnam. Romano calls Matt's mother to tell her what happened, but she checks and finds Matt asleep in bed. The next day Hooker learns that Matt was the one who supplied the liquor to the accident victims. He and Romano decide to speak with him, but on the way there they are called to cover a liquor store robbery. They arrive in time to capture one of the suspects, but three others get away. Romano finally speaks to Matt's mother about his drinking problem, but Matt overhears and later promises to straighten everything out. Before he can, though, the three liquor store robbers kidnap Matt and force him to electronically break into a liquor distribution company. Hooker and Romano get wind of the big heist and are there to arrest the three thieves. Matt, meanwhile, begins his journey towards a long hard rehabilitation.
