After witnessing Lester's hit and run incident, he was questioned by Detective Cole Phelps, despite being very less forthcoming and tight-lipped, Dudley gives Phelps background information on Lester, Lorna and Leroy.

In the Vice street crime Fatal Plunge, Dudley is seen fighting with a man on top of a roof with Shannon Perry watching. Dudley accidentally threw the man off the roof and to his death, however, he revealed to Shannon he did so to protect her from being taken advantage of.
