Hamilton County General Sessions Court Judge Gary Starnes praised Chattanooga Police Chief Fred Fletcher for helping a man in need Friday.

In a Facebook post, Judge Starnes commended the Chief for helping a man who was running down Amnicola Highway in distress.

Judge Starnes says when Chief Fletcher stopped to see what was wrong, the man told him he was afraid he was going to miss his court date because he didn't have transportation.

Chief Fletcher gave the man a ride to the courthouse and explained the situation to Judge Starnes while letting him know the man was present for court.

Judge Starnes says the man was very thankful to Chief Fletcher.

The judge says he shared the story with the courtroom.

The post says Chief Fred Fletcher is a "class act" and ended with a "thank you" from Judge Starnes.
