He Scores, He Shoots

This week's tidbit from LAPD Community Academy...

LA Lakers center Andrew Bynum - all seven feet of him - is in the Los Angeles Police Department Reserve Corps.

Bynum is one of about 900 community members who volunteer at least 16 hours a month to fulfill roles handled by full-time officers. They get badges. They get guns. They just don't get paid.

Word is there's a recruiting video in the works: Bynum goes for the hoop in his basketball uniform, lands in his LAPD Reserve garb.

No word on where you find a police uniform for someone seven feet tall.
