Six months ago off duty Oklahoma City police officer Chad Peery was savagely beaten by three men after being asked by a bartender to help remove the men from Dan O’Brien’s Public House in the northwest part of the city. Perry suffered a broken neck in the attack and was given little chance of a recovery. Six month later Peery has defied all odds and is on the road to recovery. Saturday night Peery was on the field with his two children and took a lap around the bases in his motorized wheelchair prior to the Iowa Cubs and Oklahoma Redhawks game. In the story Peery relives the attack, defying his doctors, the outpouring of support from the community, his continued road towards recovery, and the special moment at the Bricktown ballpark on Saturday night. Very good read.
