Officer Frederick’s cool disposition prevented the situation from escalating, thus giving Wightman enough time to intercede. Then, when the pair were separated, Frederick proved to be even more level-headed. Much to Wightman’s admiration, the officer carried on doing his job without the slightest bit of fuss.
Wightman explained that the officer continued as if nothing had happened. “[He took] my report about the issue I had originally called about in a very calm and professional manner,” he wrote. Frederick even apologized for not calling first, which Wightman stated was appreciated but unnecessary.
