Since his photo started been circulating recently, Pimentel says he's started to get recognized. “I’ve already gotten a couple of women approach me on the street, saying, ‘Oh you’re the cop on Facebook,'" he told the New York Daily News.
He added that his co-workers are constantly taking jabs at him and his newfound fame. “All day, all day, they're breaking my chops all day long,” he said.
Despite a little ridicule he admits he's enjoying the attention. “I think it’s awesome. I mean who doesn’t like a little positive publicity?”
You can put us under house arrest anytime, Officer Pimentel!
