[UPDATE Friday] A Reader Caught a Cop Doing This…
On March 15, about 4 p.m., reader, Joe Rial, said he “caught this cop taking a tire iron from his cruiser.” The California Highway Patrol officer was pulled over beside Hwy 101 near the slide that closed the road recently. There was another car in front of the officer’s cruiser.
“I saw him and wondered what was up,” Rial said.
Looking closer, Rial noticed an elderly man with a cane near the other car which had a flat tire. ” I saw [the officer] had removed the iron from his cruiser and went right to the tire.”
Nice of the officer to help the elderly man and kind of Rial to make sure the officer and his agency received a little recognition.
