DALLAS — Quan Nguyen grew up cheering television's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles as they battled evil to protect the world. But it was the inspirational actions of a real-life crime fighter that brought Nguyen, 25, to the ultimate moment of his life Thursday, when he became an Arlington police officer.
That living hero, Sgt. Scott Wegscheider, was in town Thursday to pin the badge on Nguyen's chest during graduation ceremonies for Arlington's 40th police recruit class. It was the culmination of a relationship that began 17 years earlier in Colorado when Wegscheider saved the life of Nguyen's older sister, Kim, after she fell into a neighbor's pool during a party and stopped breathing.
