BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - "Bruce is back!," the East Baton Rouge Sheriff's Office claims
According to officials with the EBRSO, Lt. Bruce Simmons, a deputy who was wounded in the July 2016 ambush shooting, returned to work on his motorcycle.
On Saturday, EBRSO posted a video on their Facebook page showing Simmons doing what he loved, patroling on his motorcycle.
On July 24, just over a year after being shot in the arm, Simmons returned to work, where he was promoted to lieutenant during a special ceremony.
He has undergone multiple surgeries to repair damage to his arm, hip, and leg.
In May, Simmons accepted a check for $65,000 from donations raised by the Motorman 5K to help with ongoing medical expenses.
