Muggshot: Hey! You're that cop hag that busted me back in Mesa City!
Carmelita: Muggshot, alias "Two-Gun Tony," also known as "Meat-Head" Muggshot. Seven foot three inches, three hundred and twenty-four pounds, wanted in seven countries with thirteen outstanding warrants for your arrest... And yes, I'm that "cop hag" that put you away back in Mesa.
― Before they fight[src]
After the ACES semifinals, the Cooper Gang realized that they would need to cripple Team Muggshot in order to stand a better chance of winning the finals. Bentley recently found out that Carmelita was in the area, evidently having tracked them down. They realized that the best course of action was to get Carmelita to arrest Muggshot, as not only would this eliminate him from the competition, but Carmelita would not mind postponing her search for the Cooper Gang in order to deal with another wanted man. However, after the Black Baron found out that Muggshot bribed his guards to sabotage the Cooper Gang's hangar before the semifinals, he started keeping a closer eye on Muggshot, forbidding him from interacting with the other teams. Knowing that Muggshot would do as he was told to avoid being disqualified, Bentley cooked up a plan.
Sly and Bentley discussed the situation they were in outside the hotel, and agreed that Sly would find Carmelita while Bentley would confront Muggshot inside the hotel and bait him into going outside. Bentley approached Muggshot and suggested that the two of them fight in the Town Square to settle Muggshot's conflict with the Cooper Gang. Not only did Muggshot know that doing so would get him disqualified, but he also did not feel it was worth attacking a relatively defenseless, handicapped turtle. Bentley threw insults at Muggshot to try to get him angry, eventually succeeding by insulting his mother. Muggshot agreed to meet Bentley at the Town Square in five minutes for their fight. Bentley left the hotel, found a safe spot, and gave Sly the go-ahead to get Carmelita's attention. Sly brought the resulting chase to the Town Square. After Sly gave her the slip, Carmelita noticed Muggshot, who was just exiting the hotel and making his way to the Town Square.
Muggshot soon noticed Carmelita as well and, still holding a chip on his shoulder from when she arrested him in Mesa City, dared her to try and arrest him again. Carmelita was more than happy to oblige, and a fight ensued. After a long fight, Carmelita knocked Muggshot unconscious and prepared to bring him to jail. She noted that the booking process for Muggshot would be tedious, but reasoned that her taking down Muggshot would make Sly think twice about planning anything else soon.
With Muggshot arrested, Team Muggshot had to compete in the ACES final round without their leader, effectively eliminating one of the Cooper Gang's biggest obstacles in their mission to win the ACES Finals.
