Man celebrates sobriety by finding officer who arrested himOMAHA, Neb. -
A former Omahan recently returned home for an emotional and unique reunion. He wanted to find and say thank you to the man who turned his life around a decade ago -- a retired Omaha police officer.
The last time Mark Allen walked into Omaha's police headquarters, he was in handcuffs and headed for jail. This time he tracked down the man who placed him under arrest. It was an emotional meeting for Allen as the two embraced in the lobby.
"I've wanted to say thank you in person for so long -- you have no idea," said Allen.
He wanted to find Officer Chuck Matson and tell him how things have changed since they last saw each other.
"You got one drunk driver off the road for good that night," said Allen. "You saved my life."

Wish they all could get the message. Nothing personal just don't want someone to die on my watch. Could be you. A smart man(or woman) learns from their mistakes. It's awesome to see someone turn it around and have a kick-ass life.SI VIS PACEM PARA BELLUM-Ex-Sheriff Martin Howe to Will Kane in "High Noon"
"It's a great life. You risk your skin catching killers and the juries turn them loose so they can come back and shoot at you again. If your honest , your poor your whole life. And , In the end , you wind up dying all alone on some dirty street. For what? For nothing. For a tin star."
Far from being a handicap to command, compassion is the measure of it. For unless one values the lives of his soldiers and is tormented by their ordeals , he is unfit to command.
