Carl "CJ" Johnson just arrived with an airplane in Los Santos. He's here for the funeral of his mother Beverly who has been shot by the hostile Ballas gang. CJ catches a taxi at the Los Santos International Airport in order to return to Grove Street, his old residence where he spend his whole life before he moved to Liberty City.

On his way home, the taxi is forced to stop by officer Frank Tenpenny and his pals from C.R.A.S.H.: Eddie Pulaski and Jimmy Hernandez. CJ has to get out of the taxi and they cuff him. After that he is ordered to get in the police car and they drive away. Tenpenny frames him for the murder of an appreciated cop, Ralph Pendelbury.

After they drove a little CJ is thrown out of the car into Ballas territory. There's a BMX standing in front of you. You'll have to jump on the BMX and be sure you develop a bit of handling skills. When you think you're ready drive to Marker, CJ's old house.


  • The first time you cycle with your bike, especially on the PC, it feels very weird. But you will notice that you get used to it after a while. Nothing to worry about!
  • If you don't want to cycle, steal a car.
