Rex Banner is a U.S. Treasury officer in Washington, D.C. briefly sent to Springfield to uphold Prohibition, and to replace Clancy Wiggum as Chief of Police.


His main objective was capturing the "Beer Baron", a rum-runner who was actually Homer. When this was finally done by Wiggum, Rex was fired, both from his job as chief, and from the main mechanism of punishment for breaking the ancient prohibition law: catapult.[1]
