Nick Evans drew national attention for dragging a shopping cart while driving his patrol car

BRADENTON, Fla. — Nick Evans is cloaked in a long robe with a black belt around his waist. He is barefoot and grinning.

His students are counting up with every strike -- one, two, three, four, five, six. And so on. Evans blows on his fingers, a gesture of pride. Easy work. No sweat.
