Needles was an associate of Laffy Smith. They were both involved in a dope ring in Dick Tracy's city.

When Laffy informed Needles that he was quitting the drug trade, Needles threatened Laffy. Laffy pretended to change his mind, then took Needles to a bar. Needles drank excessively, then agreed to go with Laffy to his remote cabin.

Laffy caused their car to get a flat tire. When the inebriated Needles tried to change the tire, Laffy kicked the jack out from under the vehicle. The car crushed Needles' neck, killing him. Laffy left Needles to be discovered, believing that the death would be ruled an accident.
