Charles Falco is one of only three men ever to infiltrate three different outlaw biker gangs. With his savvy and expertise, not to mention his immense courage, Falco has helped law enforcement bring some of America's most dangerous and feared gangs to justice.
This first season of The Infiltrator takes us deep inside the notorious Vagos. Falco details this operation in the optioned book Vagos, Mongols, and Outlaws: My Infiltration of America's Deadliest Biker Gangs. The real-life Donnie Brasco will meet Sons of Anarchy in a way that can be Gangland 2.0 for History. With a combination of interviews and high-end recreations, each episode unfolds a different step in Falco's covert investigation into their illegal activities. Working in conjunction with law enforcement and drawing on the wealth of material from Falco's book, along with broader documented historical research of inter-gang rivalry, this series captures the reality of outlaw biker counter-culture.
Charles Falco manages to infiltrate the notorious Vagos biker gang. But just as he's learning the ropes, a surprise invitation puts the nervous new hang-around squarely in the line of fire.
A knockout punch earns Falco his road name, and while a new motorbike gives him added street cred, he's now got a major debt to pay. Later, Falco saves a drug deal gone wrong, but an ominous message orders him to report to the clubhouse.
Now a full-patch Vago, Falco gets into trouble during the gang's annual Reno run. While he ends up with a major promotion, he loses his greatest ally and his girlfriend's trust, and makes a dangerous enemy along the way.
When Stash murders a drug dealer, the D.A.'s determination to convict him threatens to blow Falco's cover. Meanwhile, Falco proves he's a critical asset to both the Vagos and the cops. But when he later throws the first punch in a bar brawl, Falco, Schizo, and Stash all find themselves behind bars on charges of attempted murder.
Facing a month behind bars and separated from his fellow Vagos, Falco quickly climbs the ranks of the Aryan brotherhood. When his past comes back to haunt him, Falco lands in solitary where he faces his guilty conscience instead. Back at home, uncomfortable questions resurface and the gang's leadership is thrown by a secret power play at gunpoint.
With Falco's mission nearly over, Agent Koz wants Falco to lay low until the bust goes down. But when Schizo orders him to orchestrate a major drug deal, keeping a low profile proves impossible. To make matters worse, Darko and Stash pressure him to defect and start cooking meth for their rival chapter, while, Suzanna walks out on him for good. With the final police raid immanent, a vulnerable Falco is interrogated at gunpoint.
