Spider is a prison inmate at the New Mexico State Penitentiary, where he is feared by many for his intimidating personality. Due to the tension between prison inmates, the prison guards were sent in to calm things down, but a riot broke out between the inmates and guards. In the meantime, Spider waits in his cell for the riot to calm down to make his move. Spider takes a guard hostage with a shiv to his neck when several other guards come on the scene wearing riot gear. Spider orders the guards to move or else he will kill the hostage. One guard launches a can of tear gas, which hits Spider directly in his trachea, shutting down his airway and killing him instantly.
