TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (WBRC) - For an an hour Wednesday night, the home of the Crimson Tide was lit up in blue to remember fallen Tuscaloosa Police officer Dornell Cousette.
Cousette’s patrol car sat out front on the Walk of Champions to allow the community to pay their respects to the fallen officer. He was killed Monday night while attempting to make an arrest on the west end of the city.
We’re told Cousette was a huge Alabama fan. The university says lighting up the stadium in blue is the least it can do to pay respects.
Officer Cousette’s family and members of law enforcement got a chance to see the lights inside the stadium. His patrol car will be on display on the Walk of Champions until Friday.
The city of Tuscaloosa is holding a candlelight vigil for Cousette Thursday at 8 p.m. at Government Plaza.
