A St. Paul, MN, police officer says he owes his career to another officer's love of an Arby's chicken sandwich.

Officer Brad Chin was 17 and working at a shift leader at Arby's when he met Officer Lou Ferraro. Ferraro became Chin's mentor, the Star-Tribune reports.

They are the kind of cops — one a 28-year-old "rising star," the other a 58-year-old policing "legend" — who are models of the caring and dedication that cities need their police to be, former St. Paul Police Chief Todd Axtell said. Ferraro, the 2019 St. Paul Police Officer of the Year, and Chin, newly elected president of the Minnesota chapter of the National Black Police Association, now work together every afternoon shift in the department's Eastern District.
