Alpha Omega M.D. – Episode #177
…Gadsden Sheriff, Cyril Odz, a Polish immigrant whose surname has been shortened from Odezicinski, walks up to 12 men carrying a railroad tie to ram the door…
James has the good sense to roust the Gadsden County sheriff out of bed for support. He will precede James arrival, some 60 minutes hence, hoping to keep the situation from accelerating into inter-county war; with the knowledge that no matter who occupies the office of sheriff in Calhoun County, it is what Hank Blount says that goes. What is on the mind of Liberty County, God only knows. Perhaps Bristol’s close proximity to the kingdom of Blount intimidates them.
Gadsden Sheriff, Cyril Odz, a Polish immigrant whose surname has been shortened from Odezicinski, walks up to 12 men carrying, of all things, a railroad tie, prepared to ram Love’s front door in the quest for their man.
“Put that down, gentlemen, this is my territory.”
“We think there is a fugitive hiding in this house,” the one of the human mob who is tethering the animal hoard claims.
Cyril saunters up to the threshold saying, “Let me in, Herb.” He gives the 12 angry men a sideward glance, smacking of one-upmanship, as he enters.
After a five minute cursory “search”, he tells those outside that there is no fugitive inside. He really isn’t lying, having heard Clete tell him that they just let him go back in Blountstown.
“What about that stolen truck down the road,” quizzes the Liberty lawman? “It was involved in a fatal accident three days ago.”
“Mr. Love is pleased to get it back.” Cyril Odz is infuriating them.
James Ferrell will thwart them. “Do you have a man named Willy Campbell in custody?”
“No, he is in the Calhoun County Jail.”
“Where did the alleged accident take place?” James asks pointedly.
“Outside Rock Bluff,” Hansen replies.
“Accident in Liberty County charged and incarcerated in Blountstown, hummm. Wouldn’t have anything to do with the victim, would it? I suggest you tell Mr. Blount to transfer the accused to Bristol. And we look like to speak to the deceased’s girl friend. She is a witness to the accident.”
“You can expect us to be right behind you.” Herb Love nods his approval Ferrell’s way, confident that he will see justice done.
