He uses his skills and is chased by police one of who knows him well and knows he is innocent. In the end he swims across a large body of water to an island (still in the city) where he remains no longer being chased. The officer who knows him is standing on the opposite bank giving up the persuit. They each know the other is there as the movie ends.
