Would You Like Fries With That? Yes, Officer.

The Red Robin Restaurant is being infiltrated by the boys in blue Saturday.
Local police putting down the badge and grabbing an apron to get as many tips as they can get.
For the fifth year in the row, Grand Junction Police, Colorado State Patrol and the Special Olympics joined forces at the Red Robin for a wonderful fundraiser called Tip-A-Cop.
Instead of police writing up a ticket, they are writing up your order whether they know what they're doing or not.
The cops jobs are a little more than refilling pop and fries, it's all about helping the Special Olympics.
These are no “run–of–the–mill” waiter wannabee officers.
Two years ago these guys brought in the most tips in the state, and this year they are hoping for more.
Speaking of tips, a professional waitress has some for these aspiring officers.
If you haven't made it down to Red Robin just yet to see Grand Junction's finest deliver some fine cuisines, the last call is at eight tonight.
