Instead of a Ticket, Speeder Got a Favor

And 92% on his college presentation

A University of Wisconsin-Stout student got a lesson in tying a necktie from an unlikely teacher: the police officer who pulled him over for speeding. After Menomonie officer Martin Folczyk followed him into a college parking lot last month, Trevor Keeney—well-dressed in a gray suit—explained he was running late for a presentation in which he needed to wear a tie, but had no idea how to tie one, per NBC. He'd gone by a friend's house for help, but the friend wasn't home, putting him in an even greater rush. While Keeney grabbed his license and registration, Folczyk tied the tie for him—twice—and handed it over with a warning to slow down. Keeney tells ABC News he got a 92% on that presentation, plus another necktie lesson from Menomonie's police chief during a later meeting. (More police officer stories.)
