Excerpt 10 of 11 continued. The customers started clapping and cheering and began to kick the subject on their way out. I shouted to them he was under control and not do so. The first Sheriff’s car to respond was a traffic unit. I looked up as the officer walked into the store and our eyes made contact. He said ” Happy Halloween Larry,” it was Bill Fitzgerald, who I carpooled with when we were in the police academy. He laterally transferred from our department to the Sheriff’s department after graduation. It was like old home week. The arrest made Tom Blair’s column in the San Diego Union the same week. Even though I wasn’t a cop anymore, I could still feel it coursing through my veins. It was still in my blood and it was exhilarating.
