Frank Modica, a DIRECTV technician, was officially recognized and presented with an award during an early morning meeting on Sept. 2, 2015, by his employer for his brave actions less than six weeks prior in July 2015.
On July 29, 2015, Modica came to the aid of Arizona State Trooper Bryan Clark, who was struggling with a violent dangerous subject along I-10, near Casa Grande. Modica was on work duty at the time that he stopped to help trooper Clark.
During the struggle, the subject grabbed trooper Clark’s firearm, pulled it out of the holster and fired one round that did not strike anyone on scene. Modica continued to help the trooper until the man was taken into custody and played a major role in ensuring Clark’s safety and possibly saved his life.
