Unfortunately, during the arrest, the propitious lawman neglects to check the female crook for weapons and she whips out a gun. The three delinquents then take him hostage. They then head for the forest to spend the night. The female tries unsuccessfully to seduce the cop. The next morning one of the guys wants to kill him, but instead dies himself. Meanwhile a search and rescue team looks for the missing sheriff. They crooks are captured and the young boy claims that the cop raped the young girl. A heated argument ensues.
