ROMULUS, Mich. – Many men can relate to not being able to tie a tie -- and many women can relate to helping men tie their ties. But recently, those options failed and a Romulus man had to try a much bolder approach.
On Friday evening Demetrius Kirk had just bought his first suit and tie. Kirk and his wife were in Novi, headed to a wedding, but neither could tie the tie.
Kirk wasn’t about to let that ruin his night. He’s an administrator for an assisted living facility and has a 3-year-old child. Getaways for Kirk and his wife during the COVID-19 pandemic have been extremely limited.
Kirk said he saw a police officer and decided to pull over and ask the officer for help. Officer Kyle Smith was able to help.
“Usually it takes me five times, but I landed it the first time,” Smith said.
