During the investigation of the Skinner Case, Ramon Prado was suspected of being the Skinner and was put under surveillance by Detectives Debra Morgan and Joey Quinn. During this time, Ramon also tried to attain information from Felipe about Fred Bowman, but he unlawfully kidnapped him to do so. Unaware that Debra and Quinn were watching him, Ramon tasered Felipe, put him in his trunk, and drove to a secluded location. When Ramon asked Felipe for the location of Freebo, Felipe said that he didn't know where he was. Ramon then tortured him by shaking soda bottles, opening them near his face, and letting the bubbles explode up his nose, which caused Felipe to scream in agony. Ramon kept asking Felipe about Freebo, but Felipe gave the same answer each time. Finally, Ramon gave up and cut him free. After Debra and Quinn notified LaGuerta of Ramon's actions, she told them to arrest Ramon, who was subsequently forced to resign his job as a police Lieutenant..
