MURFRESBORO, Tenn. (WSMV) – A video of a Murfreesboro officer went viral on Tik Tok on Tuesday after he allegedly helped an older woman get to her hair appointment.
For MPD officer Lance Hofmeister, it was a routine day until he noticed something unusual on the highway.
“I was driving on Old Fort Parkway and noticed what appeared to be an elderly person walking down the highway with his walker,” Officer Hofmeister said. He then stopped to check on the woman, who he later learned was 84-year-old Elizabeth Goode.
Goode told Officer Hofmeister that she had taken a bus from Nashville and was trying to get to her hair appointment at the Paul Mitchell Hair School a mile away. He then offered to drive her home and the two chatted.
“I lost my grandmother a few years ago, and it gave me that feeling of heartfelt nostalgia again – it was a great feeling,” Officer Hofmeister said.
Goode got her perm through an act of service filmed and posted on Tik Tok.
“It was definitely a sweet moment, and I will always remember it,” Officer Hofmeister said.
