Throughout the Series[]

Season Two[]

In The Defense Rests, it's revealed he stopped giving Sophia cases because she is dating a cop. Trying to get on his good side, Jake manages to bond with him over betting on simple things. He excuses himself to go to the bathroom where later Jake catches him doing cocaine. He is then arrested by Jake for drug use. He gets out with just 40 hours of Community Service.

In Sabotage, it turns out that he had been the one behind all the "bad luck" Jake has been facing. He manages to capture Jake and ties him up inside his ice cream truck. Hoytsman makes Jake deliver a fake confession on camera under gunpoint, thereby framing Peralta for everything Hoytsman did.

In the middle of talking to Jake, he hears a voice from outside the truck. Thinking it's a sale, he opens the window only to be pulled out by Rosa.
