|Plot: Security guard Ben must prove himself to his girlfriend's brother, top cop James. He rides along James on a 24-hour patrol of Atlanta.|
James Payton is a detective, on an undercover operation where fake passports are being smuggled into Atlanta by a man named “Omar”. After a shootout with the smugglers, and a car chase that leaves one injured, the lieutenant leading the case ask James to drop the case on “Omar”, something James doesn’t do.
Ben Barber, a fast-talking, jumpy high school security guard, applies for the Atlanta City Police Academy. When he gets in, he decides to ask James for his blessings to marry his sister Angela. James then says Ben has to be worthy of Angela, making him go on a “ride along” to prove it.
After picking up Ben and taking him to the police station, James tells dispatch to give him all the 1-26’s that are called into the station. James makes Ben take care of all the 1-26’s. James then arrives at the park to question an informant Runflat, about a connection of Serbia and “Omar”. He finds out that a shipment will come in later that day. After leaving the park, James takes Ben to the local shooting range where he finds out that Zastava M92’s have been given to the store, Ben realizes he has a clue for James. When a 1-26 is called in, Ben and James are called to a market where a drunk man named Crazy Cody is being disorderly. Ben tries to subdue him but is unable to, so James arrests him.
