When Officer John Mazoni found Jack Bauer at the scene of the Koernigs' murder, he tazed Bauer, tied him up and beat him. Mazoni instructed his rookie partner, Phillip Lu not to call in the Koernigs' murder so he could get retribution on Bauer. When Bauer finally broke free and fought back against Mazoni, Lu pointed his gun at both men and told them not to move while he called the police station. Lu asked to speak with Lieutenant Sell. When Sell got on the line, Lu reported the Koernigs' murder and alerted him that he had a suspect in custody. At Bauer's request, Lu asked Sell what was Jim Koernig's assignment for the evening.
