Mighty Pete dated Valerie a bit but broke up with her because their personalities did not match, but told the team a relationship with Valerie cost money. Mighty Pete requested the team to let him return to the Big Mighty Yacht.
The second time Mighty Pete was interrogated was when Roxie caught wind of party goers attempting to party in the crime scene resulting in precious evidence being compromised. Amy and the player found a letter and restored it with forensic powder, revealing the letter was from Mighty Pete to his lawyers; prompting a discussion in the Big Mighty Yacht and realizing that Mighty Pete lied to the team, according to the contents of the letter. Amy demanded a reason as to why Mighty Pete lied to the police in the first place, and he furiously replied that he gave Valerie everything she wanted, but realized that Valerie was a gold digger and wanted to leave him as soon as she had enough money.
