We spoke to Sheriff Steve Lawson about his visit to the capitol last night.
K-9 officer Joker, made an appearance at the State Capitol on Thursday. The Tennessee General Assembly honored him for his service.
There was a proclamation reading for House Joint resolution 716 by Representative Mark Hall R (24) for the brave K-9 who intercepted a bullet for his handler officer Eduardo Choate last year in September.
“After being wounded multiple times, blood transfusions, feeding tubes, a portion of the jaw missing…on his first day back he apprehended three suspects,” said Representative Mark Hall at the Tennessee General Assembly.
They recognized him, just like any other Bradley County Sheriff’s Deputy.
