This was a poorly thought out script, and Eric didn't seem to get the idea. I don't blame him though. It's not that funny of a concept in hindsight. See, Lester is stealing and thinks he is caught by a cop with a gun. But then it's just Sarge with a flashlight. FUN FACT: Guns kill people, flashlights just make people more visible. Lester overpowers and beats Sarge up, escaping with stolen goodie goods.
