7-Year-Old Boy is Named Police Chief For a Day, Arrests His Dad
A seven-year-old Detroit boy was named police 'Chief for the Day."
A Detroit Police lieutenant's seven-year-old son was made “Chief for the Day” after he donated all his Christmas money to the department's K-9 unit.
After he was named police chief, Carter slapped some handcuffs on his dad, Lieutenant John Widmer, the Associated Press reported.
The boy’s mother, Kelly, told The Detroit News: "Carter was hoping for a German shepherd for Christmas, but when that didn't work out, he donated his Christmas money to the department's K-9 unit. That's when the Chief appointed him as Chief for a Day."
He reportedly donated $250.
The police department shared photographs of him at work. During his eight-hour shift, he got to spend time with a police dog.
Carter says he wants to follow in his dad’s footsteps and become a cop.
