Law enforcement from as far away as Ireland have responded to Lexington Police about the incident.
The Police Service of Northern Ireland wrote in response to LPD on Facebook: “The Horror! We may call a Donut a Gravy Ring here in Northern Ireland but we can still understand your pain. Stay strong guys; tough times don’t last, tough cops do. #WeStandWithLPD”
The New York Police Department even got in on the fun, tweeting a photo from a chopper:
Hang tight, we are sending backup forthwith, and these guys came prepared. We hope you like sprinkles. pic.twitter.com/S2WIY2ZR38
