Best of 2022: Sioux Falls Police Officer Makes It Big With Jimmy Fallon
A police officer from the Sioux Falls Police Department received a lot of local attention in January 2022 for delivering food after a DoorDash driver got arrested. The officer had a national spotlight shining on him thanks to The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.
During Jimmy Fallon's opening monologue on Wednesday, January 26, 2022, Jimmy happily applauded this officer for his dedication.
You can just hear the laughter and shock from the crowd when Jimmy shows the short clip.
The officer's name is Sam Buhr. The video first broke on the Tea Storm Chasers Facebook page. Since then, it's been shared across the internet and news outlets in the country. Even our friends at Pigeon605 secured the exclusive story about the Sioux Falls resident who ordered the food.
Her name is Anastasia Elsinger and she is a graduate student at South Dakota State University. Anastasia tells Pigeon605 that she had a feeling something was wrong with her delivery when her DoorDash delivery tracker froze.
In fact, her DoorDash driver was only a few blocks from her Sioux Falls home. Anatasia knew her food was going to be late, but she did not expect a police officer to be on her doorstep.
Anastasia was originally not going to post the video on social media. Eventually, she changed her mind and made it a video on TikTok. This was Anastasia's first TikTok video and it currently has over 4 million likes within 24 hours. Wow!
The Sioux Falls Police Department and Officer Sam Buhr will surely never forget this assignment!
