Damian told Dick the story: he'd hacked Tim's files on the computer and found that he was building contingency plans to take down heroes (including Robin).
Tim Drake went public with information on some corrupt cops, though he refused to name names until his evidence was handed over to the DA. The cops in question hired Scarab to kill Drake.

Tim, Tam, and Tiffany (Tam's sister) visited with Commissioner Gordon and ADA Rios. They were holding a press conference to out the dirty cops. Scarab struck. Drake was shot; Red Robin apprehended the assassin. Dr. Thompkins did surgery on Drake and it was announced that he had spine damage and would need the aid of crutches for several months (Miss Martian was posing as Drake).
