For a number of years, Tony worked as a bouncer at a strip club called the Foxhole and started dating a stripper who worked there named Kaja Soroka. One night, Kaja left the club with a man named Viktor Baskov and ended up in the trunk of his car, killed by him. After Tony heard about her death, he quit working at the Foxhole. Eventually, he was brought in by the police in regards to her murder as well as the murder of Detective Mike Anderson. Inadvertently, he gave them Viktor's name and revealed that he was Kaja's boyfriend. Soon after, Tony is paid a visit by Isaak Sirko and his associate Jurg Yeliashkevych to discuss Viktor Baskov. He told them he had nothing to do with it but revealed that he gave Viktor's name to the police. Isaak then stabbed Tony in the eye with his own screwdriver.
