The Biker Incident
On the night of December 5th and early morning of December 6, 2018, Senior Trooper Leonard had multiple encounters with the new biker presence in Los Santos. After assisting a quiet woman, Noel Helena, with her deceased mother, unknown assailants performed a drive-by shooting on Leonard's vehicle parked outside Pillbox Hospital. Later that day, while patrolling eastern Los Santos, Senior Trooper Leonard encountered two bikers of unknown allegiance run a red light to which he quickly responded. After a short pursuit the two bikers let off several warning shots into the hood and front bumper of Leonard's cruiser. Not backing off, Leonard pursued the duo onto the freeway where they then turned and opened fire onto Leonard directly, nearly killing him and leaving his car significantly damaged. Trying to flee the immediate area, Leonard parked on the overpass and attempted to fire upon the bikers still on the freeway. Limping back to his car, Leonard called into dispatch and sat in his destroyed cruiser when two additional bikers approached and let off another volley of automatic fire onto his cruiser, critically wounding Leonard. Attempting to reach his panic button and struggling to stay alive, Senior Trooper Leonard sat in his cruiser bleeding out until, ultimately, another and final biker arrived at the scene.This last biker, dismounting from his bike, approached Leonard's cruiser and tossed a lit Molotov onto it lighting the rear of the vehicle on fire. Shortly after the biker left, EMS James Clifford arrived at the scene and quickly moved Senior Trooper Leonard to Pillbox Medical in critical condition. Senior Trooper Leonard's survival, upon arrival to the hospital, appeared uncertain.
Recovery and Vengeance
Going off the grid and being kept in a short-term medically-induced coma, Leonard's first appearance in public since the incident was at the funeral of Army Veteran Stone Draco. Standing in an SASP jacket along with his hospital clothes, many described him as half-dead and sounding like Batman. Here, Leonard displayed his newfound contempt for The Lost Nomad M.C. and offered Archie Cooper a deal: In order for Leonard to get his own form of "justice" against the Lost Nomads, Leonard would exchange various goods ranging from cars, homes, and money for each biker Archie turned into him. Leonard even went as far as offering $250,000 per biker. This fact showed a small fracture in Senior Trooper Leonard's previous outlook as a police officer and created a spark that coincided with that of Captain Macready's in which displayed the new and possibly more humanized direction of the SASP.
Approximately a week after this event, Senior Trooper Leonard - now no longer sporting his head wrap and eye patch - was declared fit for duty and released from the hospital.
