"It's kinda like a little hobby of mine; requisitioning the underappreciated possessions of my contemporaries for some wealthy communists in China who will value them much more...Robbing my so-called friends, Slick."
Devin Weston

I Fought the Law... is a mission in Grand Theft Auto V, given by Devin Weston to protagonists Michael De Santa, Trevor Philips and Franklin Clinton.


Michael, Trevor, and Franklin meet Weston and Molly Schultz at a construction site in Alta. Weston wants the protagonists to steal a blue Cheetah and an orange Entity XF from two trust fund kids. Devin tells Michael and Trevor to dress up as San Andreas Highway Patrol officers while Franklin takes a F620 to find the marks.


The mission in the enhanced version.

Franklin drives to a gas station along the Senora Freeway where he challenges the kids to a race. The race heads north up the Freeway. When the race passes Grapeseed, the player is shifted to Michael. Michael and Trevor follow on police bikes and eventually pull over the speeding trio. Michael and Trevor force the kids from their cars. The player-controlled protagonist then calls Schultz who tells them to drop the cars at Hayes Autos. Michael, Trevor, and Franklin race back to the auto repair shop. There, Weston thanks them for their efforts, but tells them that they will only be paid when all the cars have been collected.

How to Obtain the Vehicles

There is a chance to get one of the vehicles without spending money by buying it. 

Before attempting any of this, and triggering this mission, make sure there is sufficient garage space available to store these vehicles. Particularly with the character's special garages, there is a risk of vehicles parked outside de-spawning if you go inside the garage to remove a vehicle. To avoid this risk, make sure there's room before starting the mission.

  • Cheetah: Can be acquired only with Trevor. Take it to any Los Santos Customs, and modify it. Then, drive to the drop off, skip the cutscene, and go to the car impound. The Cheetah will be listed in the impounded vehicles list.
  • Entity XF: Only with Michael. Do one of the methods same as above.
  • Adder: With all the characters. Walk to the "D" sign, in the construction site. Don't walk onto the sand; otherwise, you will trigger the mission. Get any explosive and shoot it to any other cars around the Adder. The mission will disappear and you can take the Adder. This method is pointless as the risk of the car can be destroyed, and that it spawns regularly on Portola Drive. To avoid exploding the Adder, just shoot the other car with a pistol instead of an explosive.
  • F620: With all three characters. Same way as the Entity XF or Cheetah way but it is best to do it BEFORE doing the races, as it allows the player to steal the XF or the Cheetah afterwards.




  • The mission title is a reference to the song with the same name, written by Sonny Curtis and popularized by The Bobby Fuller Four.
  • The mission itself may be a reference to the show CHiPs.
  • The F620 used in this mission was originally supposed to be colored white, as seen in the second trailer, then green, before finally appearing in red.
  • This is the only time that the Cheetah and the Entity XF appear in the campaign. After this mission, the player can only see these cars in the single player again if they are purchased from the website
  • The cutscene in which Franklin calls Michael to inform them that they are coming through Grapeseed is a reference to Reuniting The Families mission in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, as Michael and Trevor throw their half-eaten donuts to the ground and begin chase on Police Bikes. The same happens in the GTA San Andreas mission.
  • In the garage where the characters deliver the stolen cars for Weston, there is a wall that has a list of target cars written on it that only shows up under UV light like in Gone in 60 Seconds
  • After collecting the cars, either Michael, Trevor, or Franklin will call Molly at the number 346-555-0174. If you call this number back after the call is completed, you will hear the voicemail for Cletus.
