The fat police chief angrily dismisses his squad from the headquarters and the cops all mount their motorcycles and set off on the road. Snub, hiding behind a small bush witnesses them drive past him and tries to get on his own bike which fails to start. Eventually and after a lot of aggressive effort the bike fires into life and Snub shoots off on it. He catches up to the eight officers and stops them to issue a speeding ticket to them all.
Nearby a kid on a tricycle (Ernest Morrison) is given a jug containing liquor to deliver to a local establishment where several customers stop by for an illegal drink. The men use a secret knock on the door and are handed a small glass through a hatch in the door, all under the watchful eye of Snub who hides around the corner.
