Fields — a law enforcement officer in Morgan County, Alabama — has since found himself trending online, much to his surprise.
“It’s been good, it’s been a lot of positive contacts with the public,” he said on the program. “Usually, when we show up, it’s not anything good. Now I get a lot of good positive contact with the public so we can better unite as a community, and that’s a good thing. It’s been fun, though.”
The photo of Fields was first posted to the Facebook page of the Morgan County Sheriff’s Department on August 21, but it was soon turned into a TikTok video that has since clocked up close to two million views.
“Oh s–t! Wow. Guy on the left is way cooler,” the actor referenced Fields as he reposted the image. “Stay safe brother and thank you for your service. One day we’ll drink @Teremana and I need to hear all your ‘Rock stories’ because I KNOW you got ’em.”
