Cops get guns from David Spade

PHOENIX (AP) - December 23, 2008

He's donated $100,000 so the department can buy about 50 AR-15 rifles.

Spade says he made the donation after seeing a TV news report about Phoenix officers having to pay for their own rifles.

Spade says "these guys need to be able to do their jobs" and he says he's happy he could help.

A Phoenix police sergeant says the department is grateful.

Spade grew up in the Phoenix area.
