Andrew Poole said he blew out his tire on Kings Highway by 9th Avenue North while avoiding a careless driver. Officer Hinton with MBPD responded to help. Poole’s tire iron was stripped, so Officer Hinton drove back to the station and grabbed a working tire iron from his personal vehicle, then returned to help change the tire.
“He even did more most of the work!!!” Poole said in a Facebook message. “Officer Hinton is the MAN!!!!!”
Poole said Officer Hinton was very nice and went above and beyond, even looking up an address for a woman walking by.
