Today's police blotter:
With all the bad cop stories out there, it's good to hear something positive about a police officer. In Lynden, Washington, State Trooper DAVE HINTZ went out of his way to help and elderly woman get home. She had gone out for a ride on her electric scooter and got lost. She was actually driving the highway! He didn't ticket her or scold her. "I just treated her the way I would've wanted somebody to treat my mom," said Hintz. He followed her home. Her scooter only did about six miles per hour and he still escorted her home safely. (Myers)
