ST. PAUL — In a room adorned with sketches by St. Paul school children, all of them praising police, St. Paul police officer David Longbehn's battered black eyes teared up.

"This is nothing. I am so lucky to be standing here with just this," he said of his injuries during a Wednesday night news conference at St. Paul police headquarters. "There's a family of a member of the law enforcement community who is there without their dad and without their husband and without their son and brother."
