Tennessee police officer helps teens get through a 'knotty' prom situation

Portland police department reportedly losing officers in droves

115 Portland police officers have reportedly left since July 2020; Fox News analyst Lawrence Jones breaks down what’s happening in liberal cities.

Two teens received a helping hand from a Tennessee cop in March, which at first seemed a bit bizarre, but ultimately saved the day.

Officer Adam Price was called over from his patrol of Liberty Park in Clarksville to help 18-year-old Elijah Darling, and his friend, 18-year-old Jalen Lewis, tie their neckties for their high school senior photos.

“I was kind of confused, like, I didn’t expect this to be happening,” Darling said. “I thought he was going to leave at first.”

“I was thinking this is weird,” Lewis added.

"It’s just a normal part of our day," Officer Adam Price said. "That’s something we’re called to do often. That’s actually the best part of it for me. It’s not fighting crime. It’s doing these little things in the community."

Price, having not tied a tie in a year, was a little rusty but handled the situation with panache.

“But I got out there, figured it out and got them going,” he said.

He put the ties around his own neck, made the proper knots and then placed them on Darling and Lewis.

“It’s just a normal part of our day,” Price continued. “That’s something we’re called to do often. That’s actually the best part of it for me. It’s not fighting crime. It’s doing these little things in the community.”

He believes it’s the little things that ensure the public knows the cops are on their side.

“Got more work to do,” he said. “It’s not going to stop the fact that I have to make a positive impact every day.”
