What started as a fairly common call about someone hitting a deer on a Maine roadway ended with a big surprise for one State Trooper.
Trooper Tyler Maloon took to Facebook to detail his encounter:
“So, I cover a car deer crash in Fairfield and end up giving the operator and his wife a ride to the Pittsfield Irvings. As we’re driving they begin talking about an event they’re going to at the Cross Insurance Center, stating “the trophy” has to be there at such and such a time, and that they’ll have to head back after for opening day at Fenway for a presentation there. Naturally, I ask what trophy. They then tell me that he works for the Patriots and that the Lombardi Trophy is in my cruiser! My mind was blown, seriously what are the odds! A story for the ages!”
As it turns out, the Patriots employees and the the trophy were unharmed – and the Vince Lombardi Trophy made it’s next scheduled appearance at the Cross Insurance Center in Bangor, Maine.
