Deputy honored for saving choking diner
A spokesman for the Shelby County Sheriff's Office sent me a text about this story. He wondered if I'd be interested. Given all the negative news about law enforcement of late.. I jumped on the chance to do a positive story. A woman who choked on a piece of fried zucchini at Logan's Roadhouse credits and off-duty deputy for saving her life. He stepped in and gave her emergency aid. My photographer went down to the criminal courthouse to interview the deputy while I was in the 4:00 newscast. We later interviewed the woman at Logan's. The GM even gave me some fried zucchini to use in my story.
