A Chicago teen has a new gym membership after a police officer paid for his dues at a fitness center following repeated attempts to sneak onto the basketball courts.
X-Sport Operations Manager Justin Pritchett said the teenager would repeatedly walk past the front desk and onto the court. He said only a day after being warned, the boy tried to sneak in yet again.
“We had no choice but to contact police,” Pritchett told The Chigaco Tribune.
Skokie police officer Mario Valenti responded to the call for police that August day. What happened next surprised everyone at X-Sport.
Instead of arresting the teen, Valenti offered to pay $150 of his own money for a membership.
