Louis Beretti and two of his gang are arrested on a robbery charge. As a result of a newspaper campaign initiated by reporter Bill O'Brien to promote the election of the district attorney, the trio are sent overseas to fight in the war. Back in New York, Beretti drifts into the nightclub business, but he is brought back into contact with the East Side Gang when "Big Shot" settles his account with Ritzy Reilly for squealing. Later, when Sheldon's sister reports her child missing, Beretti effects the rescue and shoots it out with Big Shot, who demands an accounting because he failed to "keep his nose clean," resulting in Beretti's death.
