To protect and to serve.
A University of Wisconsin student got more than he thought he would when he was stopped for speeding. He got served.
The student explained his predicament to Menomonie Police Officer Martin Folczyk after the stop, according to Fox9 KMSP News.
“I have to get a tie tied,” the driver said. “I have a presentation and I thought my buddy was home but he’s not, and I’m running behind.”
Folczyk then asked the student for his tie before requesting his license, registration and proof of insurance.
As the student went to retrieve these items from his vehicle, the officer tied the tie around his own neck and handed it back.
“Probably not the best knot, but it will work,” Folczyk said.
“Better than what I was going to do,” the student admitted. “Thank you so much.”
The student was given a verbal warning instead of a citation. Fox9 couldn’t confirm what grade his presentation earned, but he did get some extra credit of sorts. When the police chief saw the footage of the stop, he invited the driver to the station to learn how to tie his own ties.
