Retired LMPD lieutenant donates bike to teen who had his stolen

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A teen has his bike stolen and a retired Louisville police officer swooped in to save the day.

Nathaniel Fowler suffers from cerebral palsy and his special bike helps him with his therapy.

The bike, which cost over $600, helps him to get around.

Retired Lieutenant Johann "Kit" Steimle donated a new bike to Fowler and had it shipped from California.

"It touched my heart and I got a hold of the family and asked if I could donate the bike," Steimle said. "I'd spend a million bucks for that."

The bike was stolen last Monday.

Officer Steimle also got Fowler four tickets to a U of L basketball game and a sweatshirt.
