Son of Fallen Deputy Fails to Buy His Dad’s Squad Car at Auction
Weld County Sherriff’s Deputy, Sam Brownlee, was killed in the line of duty in 2010 after a police chase. 5 years later when his squad car was going to be auctioned off, his son wanted a piece of his father’s legacy. When a local man agrees to pay $60k for the car that was worth only $12k, the boy is heartbroken. The room erupts in applause when the man hands the officer’s son the keys to his squad car.
