Homeless man has close shave with police

His name is Phil and he's homeless. He applied for a job at McDonalds in Tallahassee, Florida, and was told he'd be considered if he shaved his beard. So he went next door to a gas station and tried to shave, but his razor was broken. That's when Officer Tony Carlson appeared. Phil asked for help fixing his razor, and Officer Carlson tightened a screw until it worked. But Phil was having a tough time shaving without any mirror, so Officer Carlson gave him a great shave.

A passerby took a video of the incident and sent it to the police department, where it was put on their Facebook page. It was shared more than 1,000 times on Facebook, but did Phil get a job under the Golden Arches? Phil still needed an ID and Social Security card, and Officer Carlson had good news for him. He'd been contacted by Senator Mark Ribio's office. The staff had seen the story and mailed all the forms that Phil would need. "I didn't do anything special," Carlson said. "It happens all the time."
