The 79-year-old man bought a new TV and while you may think, what could be the problem is? The man can't make his new TV work, for his sick wife and for his adult special child.

Sometimes we are overwhelmed with what is happening in our lives, that a simple problem can spiral us into despair.

The problem on this day was that he had just bought a new TV for his family - but was rushing all over town trying to find the right cables to hook it up.
"I really try to drive right," David said. "I bought a new television today because I wanted to make my wife happy, you know, and I can't get it hooked up."
The man explained that he went to different stores to figure out how to connect it.

The police officers came to his house and needless to say, fixed his new TV. Sterling Heights Police Chief Dale Dwojakowski complimented the three officer's outstanding work to help David resolve the issue.

"I'm very proud of Officer Coates, Officer Verougstraete, and new recruit Officer Jakushevich for going above and beyond to help our residents," Dwojakowski said. "This is just another example of the amazing service that the Sterling Heights Police Department provides our community".

David was given a verbal warning for speeding.
