On January 27th, Milwaukee Police Officer Herbert Davis III was responding to a welfare check when he was shot multiple times. Thankfully, Davis wasn’t seriously injured. He spent the night in the hospital and was released the next day. Community members set up a crowdfund to help Davis recover mentally and physically.
Milwaukee radio station WTMJ-AM and their parent company Good Karma Brands heard about Davis and had the officer come on the radio where the station’s vice president Steve Wexler surprised him with two tickets to Super Bowl LVI (56) in L.A. They also gave Davis a pair of plane tickets, a couple of thousand dollars in spending money, and picked up a hotel room for him. “It's just a token of our appreciation for your service, your commitment, and your inspiration that you've brought to all of us," Wexler says.
A huge Cincinnati Bengals fan, Davis was speechless for a minute after the announcement. He got his love for the team from his dad, who he plans to take with him to the game. “My dad is my best friend,” Davis says. “As much as I am happy and excited for this, this would mean the world to him.” After receiving the good news, Davis says he plans to use the money that was crowdfunded for him to get a pair of fellow officers who were also recently injured in the line of duty to the Super Bowl as well.
