WASHINGTON (Circa) -- A police officer in Tallahassee, Fla. is going viral after helping a homeless man in need of a shave.
According to a witness account, the man walked into a McDonald's in order to try and get a job. But the workers at the restuarant wouldn't give him a job unless he shaved his beard.
The officer took it upon himself to buy clippers and shave the man's beard at a nearby gas station.
Here is the full account, as seen on the City of Tallahassee Police Department's Facebook page:
“My daughter just sent me this picture and called to tell me the story, I had to share....she went to the gas station and saw this officer shaving a homeless man's beard. A minute later the officer went into the store and Hannah walked in after him and saw him cleaning himself up because he was hot and sweaty. She offered to buy him a drink and got talking. Apparently the officer was at McDonald's next door and this gentleman went in looking for a job. He was told they wouldn't hire him unless he shaved his beard. So the officer went and got some clippers and shaved the man's beard so he could go back and get a job! I am so proud to live in a community where our deputies and officers are such wonderful people. Good job Tallahassee Police Department!!! ❤”
