Job well done. Officer Melton is a credit to his force - and was before this selfless act.

Amazing story!

Noone would have blamed him for not risking himself, but he did it anyway - inspiring work, Officer Melton.

You're a true hero.

I agree. The Alcoa PD, as well as the City of Alcoa, are good. Thanks to all and a special thanks to Officer Melton.
