My cousin is going to be on TV...

I just got an email from G and T (and my mom also forwarded her copy to me) to let me know that G is going to be on an episode of COPS this weekend! How about that?? My crazy-ass baby cousin gets to be on TV! LOL


Hey everyone!

Well as most of you know, and some of you do not, back in late May to early June, I had a film crew from the TV show COPS riding along with me while on patrol. Well, in their producer’s infinite wisdom, he felt that one of my incidents of fighting crime and suppressing evil deserved some national air time on their show. On the same date, they will be showing another incident that I was involved in, but they were not riding with me on that particular night. They were riding with one of my close friends and co-worker, Raymond. My incident involved a short pursuit of a stolen truck, while Raymond’s involved the arrest of several juveniles that decided to run around and rob several people at gun point over a several hour period. The show will air on Saturday, January 24th at 7:00p.m. central time.

I don’t know everyone’s email that I would like to notify of this, so if I missed someone, please feel free to forward it along to those people you feel would like to see it. I have not had the opportunity to view the video, so hopefully I didn’t make too much of a fool of myself, but I guess that will give everyone new ammunition of things to jack with me about (as if I don’t give all of you enough cause already). My wife is already saying that my ego was big enough, now we will have to move iinto a bigger house!

Hope everyone is doing well!
