WFPD Officer Scott Graham Not Afraid of Greatness

For those of us who have met Wake Forest Police Department Officer Scott Graham it can come as no surprise the guy is destined for good things. He’s a hell of a nice guy, but then again we’ve never met him carrying an armload of beer with him behind us in a foot chase. He probably yells something like “I …
