I was walking around downtown Knoxville when I happened upon an irate police officer fiercely lecturing a young man. What made the scene unusual was that the subject of his ire was blankly staring up at him from a wheelchair. I raised my camera and snapped off a shot. I focused in on the officer's intently wagging finger hoping to capture a "photo of the week" suddenly, the cops accusing finger changed direction and, pointed directly at me.

"Mind your own business!" he bellowed.

I dropped my D7 to my chest and retreated to a park bench.

The cop looked at me sternly, turned around, and continued on his beat. I then made the mistake of making eye contact with wheelchair boy. There was no escape; he was wheeling his chariot toward me! He pulled up next to the bench, STOOD UP from his chair, and held out his fist for a fist bump. I bewilderingly concurred.

The **** ratted me out!!! he howled.

Whaaat?

"My wife, she called the Sevierville cops and told them where I was."

He started to fluff up the pillow on his mobile chair.

"I was hanging out at the park" he continued. And they said I was bothering people, I know my wife told them that! They loaded me up onto a Rural Metro ambulance and drove me to Knoxville, I don't know a soul in Knoxville and when I got here, a cop was waiting for me.

I told the prick that I could make more money than he could in a day and that he should go F_ck himself!"

"That's a nice chair." I said

"Thanks" he smiled "I've wheeled this **** all the way down from Louisville, Kentucky, this chair is sick!"

I shook my head in agreement.

"Can I take your picture?"

"Sure." he said

"I quickly clicked off a few shots, slipped him five bucks and walked away.
