About the NYPD SergeantEdit

Sgt. Gorsky, a patrolman, pays Archie a visit at home. After searching the Bunker living room, he finds the pepper spray in a drawer, then arrests him for illegally possessing the spray and for using it on a mugger who attacked him when he entered his taxicab, which in New York State, is technically still a criminal offense. Anyhow, when the case, which went to trial, is heard by Judge Frances MacKenzie (Paulene Myers), she learns that in searching the Bunker living room without a search warrant, Officer Gorsky violated Archie's civil rights, which moved her to throw the case out of court.
