Tip-a-Cop in Newport Saturday for Special Olympics 

Catherine Pegram

Four Newport police officers will turn in their badges Saturday – for a few hours, at least – to help raise money for Special Olympics. They’ll put on aprons instead and serve customers at the Newport Pizza Hut. In exchange, the officers will accept donations and tips and all of the money they collect will go to the Special Olympics. Some of the other servers plan to chip in their tips, too. You can tip-a-cop from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m., again, at the Newport Pizza Hut on Main Street.
