Kenny Chesney apologizes for announcing the death of a living cop

Kenny Chesney apologized to a Pennsylvania police officer for announcing that he had died.

Kenny Chesney apologized to a Pennsylvania police officer for announcing that he had died.

The officer, Christopher Dorman, who was shot multiple times near Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, is a member of the Folcroft Police Department.

“I’d like to thank all the police, paramedics and the doctors – and hey, Kenny, don’t forget me!” said Dorman, who was supposed to attend a Chesney concert on Saturday in south Philadelphia before his shooting.

“Before we get going with the rest of the show, last night, a Philadelphia police officer was shot seven times. In the hospital on his bed…he passed away, but before he passed away he made a video that he wanted to come tonight so bad, and he said, Kenny, please don’t forget me,” remarked Chesney at the concert.

Fortunately, Dorman did not die of his wounds.

“[I] caught up in the moment,” reported WPVI-TV of Chesney speaking about the shout out to Dorman. “The emotions got the best of me.”

Chesney would later call Dorman to apologize for the confusion.

“It was a great conversation, just in typical Chris fashion took it in stride, was laughing about things,” said Folcroft PD Sgt. William Bair in an interview with WPVI-TV.

 

“So @kennychesney just called @FolcroftPD #OfficerDorman to apologize and wish him the best. How cool is that?#Dormanthedelcolegend,” tweeted the official Folcroft PD account Sunday.
“@FolcroftPD He’s doing great. Told him we’d watch an Eagles game & have beers one day. Here’s to a speedy recovery! #Dormanthedelcolegend,” tweeted Chesney in response
