BRPD's Rickey Faust receives accessible van

BATON ROUGE, La (LOCAL 33) (FOX 44) - "Back the Blue" and officers with the Baton Rouge Police Department have been raising money for BRPD officer Rickey Faust, an injured Baton Rouge police officer.

This morning, they presented Faust with a brand new accessible van from both groups.

Faust has been on a wheelchair for almost a year after suffering major injuries from a car crash in March of 2017.

"I can feel my toes now," said Faust. "I can feel my feet. That's the main thing and it's coming back. It's a slow process every week. I get stronger and stronger. I just praise God; that's all you got to do."

"Black the Blue" is also working to build him a house to further accommodate his needs.
