Golf tournament benefits injured Pearl police officer

PEARL, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

An injured Pearl police officer benefited from a golf tournament at Pearl Municipal Golf Course Friday.

Called the Thin Blue Line On The Green, 10 teams competed for prizes and bought raffle tickets to help Officer Jason Scarborough and his family pay medical bills.

 Scarborough said,"It just shows the love and the concerns from the citizens of, like I said, Pearl, Brandon and Rankin County as well as other counties that come out here to show support for not only for me but for my family and the law enforcement community as well."

Officer Scarborough was injured in a crash on Pemberton Drive in July when he was answering a house burglary call.

He is wheel chair bound for now and all proceeds go to helping pay his medical bills.
