Susie was dropped off at the Elsewhere park by Orsen. He said He would pick her up at 11:00 p.m. when the park closed. There Susie met up with three of her friends which Jerry was only licensed to drive for a few months. Susie only lived a few blocks from the park. When the park closed she was waiting for Orsen to come pick her up, but the law was that minors have a curfew and have to be home at 11:00 p.m. They were approached by Officer Ruthless who told them that they had to leave and told Susie to get in the back of the truck which was legal in the state to ride in the back without seatbelts.
