Milwaukee Police Officer Herbert Davis, who was shot three times last Thursday, will soon be on a plane headed to Los Angeles to watch his Cincinnati Bengals play in Super Bowl 56, WTMJ reports.
Davis, who plans to take his dad with him, was gifted Super Bowl tickets by WTMJ and parent company Good Karma Brands on Tuesday during Wisconsin’s Afternoon News.
“My dad is my best friend and as much as I am happy and excited about this, this would mean the world to him as much as it would mean to me,” Davis said. “Hopefully we both get to see a win and I’m so appreciative. They say God works in mysterious ways and this is one of them.”
In addition to tickets for the game, Davis is also being provided airfare, hotel accommodations, and a couple thousand dollars in spending money to use while in Los Angeles. Davis, a self-described super fan of the Bengals, was wearing Bengals gear when he was released from the hospital following the shooting last week and on Sunday his fandom was on full display when a video of him went viral after his team beat the Kansas City Chiefs to clinch a spot in the Super Bowl.
