Rush is based on the infamous Tyler, Texas drug scandal of the late 1970's, when two police undercover officers (Wozencraft and her partner, later her husband) were brought in from the Plano Police Department and were assigned to break up a huge smuggling ring that was suspected to be run by a Tyler club owner by the name of Bora. Most of what happens in the movie happened in real life, from the addiction getting out of control to the use of planted evidence. However, the movie never explored the role of U.S. Assistant Attorney Kelly Ireland and how he found out about the problem from a casual conversation with a Texas Ranger at a meeting in Fort Worth, and how he pursued it at great cost to his own career and life. But, even though that is left out, the movie reflects what really happened - the Tyler PD being torn in two between the officers who thought what they did was necessary and those who thought what they did was inexcusable, and the same divisions within the community. Kim Wozencraft ran into Kelly Ireland on an airplane many years later and asked forgiveness, which he readily gave, and a recommendation, which he would never give after what she did. They were both sentenced to prison, being released in 1983, and then placed in witness protection.
