Ari was present with Schector in his office at 1208 Naylor Road, which was across the street from the Columbia Building in Washington, D.C.. After FBI agent Renee Walker and Jack Bauer knocked and asked to speak with Schector, Ari answered the door and called for him. When the guests began to pry about Schector's illegal activities, he asked Ari to show them to the door. Ari forcefully grabbed Agent Walker's arm, but she quickly subdued him with a series of hits and knocked away his pistol. Schector reached for a weapon also, but was threatened by both Renee and Jack before he could aim.
Although Schector was about to confess his activities, both he and Ari were silenced by Alan Tanner, a sniper on top of the Columbia Building.
