Before Day 5
A week before Day 5, Carruth had an error in his assignment package. It was later corrected.
Carruth was recalled from the helicopter flight by Agent Steve Thompson due to interference from Mike Novick and Chloe O'Brian, and, when he returned to the Secret Service outbuilding to find out why, he was distracted by Aaron Pierce and knocked out by Jack Bauer. Bauer then took Carruth's place on the flight using two forged documents.
