U.S. bobsledder Johnny Quinn’s #SochiJailBreak has attracted the attention of the Denton (Tex.) Police Department.
But the Denton P.D. hasn’t extended its jurisdiction into Russia. Last Sunday, they actually offered him a job on their SWAT team when he returns from the Sochi Olympics:
And a few days later, they announced his response:
If this isn’t a reality show in the making, we don’t know what is.
Denton P.D. Officer and media relations handler Ryan Grelle explained to TODAY.com why they made the offer:
“He went to college at the University of North Texas here in Denton, so we thought it would be a fun thing for a hometown boy, even though he lives in McKinney (Texas) now, to come back, have some fun with us and carry it a little farther.”
Per TODAY.com, the department intends to teach Quinn how to bust through doors properly with a breaching ram and not with his own person.
Either way, troublemakers in Denton better beware.
