Retired LMPD lieutenant donates bike to teen who had his stolen
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.
