Elderly Man Guards Police Officer At Gas Station, "I've Got Your Back"
This 73-year-old veteran is making sure his local police are safe!
A deputy with the Lake County, Florida Sheriff’s Office is thanking an elderly stranger for going the extra mile to make sure law enforcement officials are safe.
David Causey is a deputy with the Florida Sheriff's Office. When he was getting gas in his patrol SUV he noticed a man acting strangely nearby. With everything going on concerning police lately, Causey was not sure of the man's intentions. After a few minutes, he realized the older gentleman identified as Casey DeLoach, meant him no harm... in fact, was making sure no one meant this officer harm!
The man turned to him and said, “Thank you sir for what you do. I have your back.” Casey was standing guard, protecting the officer. He said he has been standing guard for law enforcement officers at gas stations for years, after a Texas deputy was shot in killed in 2015 while pumping gas.
