Tossed is a cell search. A gloved cop choses a random cell and goes through bedding, drawers, shelves, shoes and clothing, looking for contraband. Some cops are thorough to to the point of testing shampoo bottles, some are just a quick scan, as in, “Please God, please don’t let me get some sort of disease from touching this disgusting woman’s underwear.” If a guard shows up with a plastic bags and gloves at your door, you are in trouble, you are moving downward and falling again.
