ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) — Acting courteous, even when arresting someone, has paid dividends for the Alaska State Troopers.

KTVA reports a 49-year-old Anchorage man wanted on several felony warrants decided to turn himself in to troopers Friday after watching an episode of the reality show “Alaska State Troopers” on the National Geographic Channel.

Brian John Fahey approached two troopers in the parking lot of the Anchorage headquarters late Friday afternoon.

According to troopers, Fahey said he believed they “were more professional and courteous to the people they arrested than other law enforcement personnel he had dealt with.”

Fahey has outstanding warrants for felony escape from an Anchorage halfway house and for failure to appear on original counts, including forgery and theft. He’s being held on $20,000 bail ahead of an arraignment later Monday.
