Before Season 1Edit
Vic Mackey arrested Miguel allegedly using excessive force, injuring his arm with a pair of pliers. During the arrest, Miguel had eight bags of heroin with him. His case was being overseen by Judge McCallister.
Together with his attorney, Jose Garcia, Miguel filed a complaint against Vic Mackey for excessive force. During a meeting with Captain David Aceveda, Mackey denied the charges. After that, Mackey and Shane Vendrell visited Miguel to threaten him. Miguel then called Aceveda to drop his complaint.
