How to Stop a Drunkard.

It’s important to remember that law enforcement officers put their lives on the line each and every day to protect citizens in their community. There are a lot of stories in the news these days of police officers mishandling difficult situations, sometimes with dire consequences. Those stories deserve attention, but it’s equally as important to remember that there are officers on the front line, putting their own lives in grave danger so that we can be just a little bit safer. These officers act as positive role models in their communities, reduce criminal activity, and act as first responders in emergency situations and even natural disasters.

One officer that takes his job protecting his community very seriously is State Trooper First Class Roy Moomey of Arkansas. When a report came in that a drunk driver was traveling down the interstate at a high rate of speed and in the wrong direction, he made a choice that would most like end his own life, but would save the lives of other civilians on the highway.
