Just as Prohibition begins in [[January 16, 1920]], Nucky makes preparations to enter [[bootlegging]] and profit from what he correctly predicts to be an extremely lucrative business. However, his first deal to supply alcohol to [[New York City]] crime boss and gambling legend [[Arnold Rothstein]] is thwarted by the ambitions of [[Jimmy Darmody]]. He and [[Al Capone]] [[Hammonton hijacking|steal]] the alcohol as it passes through [[Hammonton]], New Jersey and sell it to [[Chicago]] crime boss [[Johnny Torrio]] instead. At the same time they hand over Nucky's distillery operation to the prohibition agents, keeping them busy while they make their move in Hammonton. The hijacking is bloody and ends with four of Rothstein's men killed and [[Simon|one]] badly wounded, who identifies Jimmy before he dies. The incident results in a feud between Nucky and Rothstein, who blames Nucky for the hijacking, a political scandal that compromises the Republican prospects in the [[1920 Atlantic City local election]] as well as tipping Nucky's hand to the Bureau of Prohibition, attracting the attention of senior prohibition agent Nelson Van Alden. Nucky responds by exiling Jimmy, who takes refuge in Chicago under the protection of Torrio.
