This is the kind of news you like to read.

Milwaukee Police Officer Herbert Davis was responding to a call about a sick/injured man last Thursday, when he arrived to see him slumped over in the vehicle.

When Davis attempted to provide assistance, the man jumped up and fired at Officer Davis, fled on foot, and then stole his police cruiser. He crashed several blocks down the street and was apprehended.

The suspect, Jetrin Rodthong, has been charged with first-degree intentional homicide and use of a dangerous weapon. A cash bond has been set at $1 million.

Davis was treated at the hospital for three gunshot wounds and released. He left the hospital dressed in is Bengals gear and was able to celebrate the AFC Championship win at home.

That’s when the radio station WTMJ-AM took notice, according to FOX News.

The station gifted him tickets on Tuesday afternoon to the Super Bowl to watch his Bengals play.

WTMJ, along with the police station, are working together to pay for his travel expenses, hotel, as well as spending cash, and Davis says he plans on taking his dad with him to Los Angeles.

You love to see it.

Thankful for the support and of course the trip to the Super Bowl, Officer Davis wants to also help out his fellow police officers who’ve been shot in the line of duty:

“These guys suffered the same thing I suffered through and their families are going through this as well and it kind of felt as if I’m getting so much recognition, what are they getting?”

A GoFundMe account has been set up for detective Wilkiewicz and deputy Almonte, two Milwaukee officers who were also shot in January.
