Speeding Student Gets Pulled Over, And Cop Gives Him A Helpful Surprise

You’re a college student, which means you may be consistently disorganized, late and in a hurry.

That was certainly the case for University of Wisconsin-Stout student Trevor Keeney last month. He had a big class presentation due and was in a hurry to meet a friend so the friend could—wait for it—tie his tie for him before the big presentation. I guess Trevor hasn’t mastered that tricky concept just yet.

So he’s zipping along, and not paying attention to the speedometer. Oops, say hello to Officer Martin Folczyk of the Menomonie Police Department, who lit him up to have a friendly chat about the posted speed in the area. Watch what happens next, as captured by the police cruiser dashcam:

Officer Folczyk let Feeney off with a warning—in addition to a tied tie, of course.

Good Morning America/Yahoo notes that Keeney scored a 92 on his presentation (his polished look no doubt played a big part.) The Menomonie police chief also invited Keeney to the station for a personal one-on-one lesson in the art of tying a necktie.

“I went back and met with him for about 30 minutes and he taught me! It was cool,” Keeney told ABC News.
