A well-known term in law enforcement for the short nap you take when you're in the interview room before speaking to detectives about some shit you got caught for. It's almost always a sign of guilt.

It's caused by the fight/flight response. You were "flighting" before they caught you, now you're in cuffs looking 25-life in the face. Since fighting's no option and you can't run anymore, your body overloads with adrenaline and shuts itself down in a sort of mini-panic attack.
The detectives walked in and interrupted Bobby's guilt nap to question him about his involvement in a murder.
