Harold "Stretch" Joseph is a character in the Grand Theft Auto series, appearing as a supporting character and one of the two secondary antagonists in Grand Theft Auto V.

Stretch is a high ranking member of the Chamberlain Gangsters Families and a friend of Lamar Davis.

HistoryEdit

BackgroundEdit

Harold Joseph joined the Chamberlain Gangsters Families, eventually becoming a respected "OG", a high-ranking, veteran member of the gang, as well as gaining the nickname "Stretch". He became good friends with Lamar Davis, but he developed a strong dislike for Franklin Clinton.

At some point prior to 2013, Stretch was arrested and taken to prison for an unknown crime.

Events of GTA VEdit

Near the beginning of the game, he departs from prison for crimes that are never revealed, and Lamar plans a sort of reunion for himself, Stretch and Franklin. The trio heads towards a deal with D, which turns out to be an ambush by the Ballas, as revenge for D being kidnapped by Lamar earlier, but the trio manage to escape, with Stretch killing D in the process.

He is slowly revealed to be an associate of the Ballas, and has attempted to have both Lamar and Franklin killed during several set ups, including the kidnapping of Lamar by the Ballas, although all attempts were foiled by Franklin and his friends, Michael De Santa and Trevor Philips.

By the end of the game, Franklin is given a choice to either kill Michael and Trevor, or side with them as they kill their enemies, including Stretch. Should the player choose to kill Michael or Trevor, Lamar gives Franklin a call after it is over and lets Franklin know that he has taken his advice on staying away from Stretch. If Franklin chooses to kill off the antagonists, Michael will agree to assassinate Stretch due to his lack of any provable association with Stretch. Stretch will be hanging out with a group of Ballas at the BJ Smith Recreational Center where he is confronted and killed by Michael.
