The Salt Lake Tribune is reporting that Vincent D’Onofrio (Law & Order Criminal Intent) will head a September 18th fundraiser to benefit Utah police who claim that methamphetamine sickened them via their work exposure to meth labs or the drug itself. The goal is to raise money for detoxification treatments for the affected officers.
The story also reports that “D'Onofrio's sister and brother-in-law opened a Rib City franchise in Sandy in 2007 and later another franchise in American Fork. The Sandy restaurant closed earlier this year. Last year, D'Onofrio held fund raisers at both restaurants to raise money for such police causes as "Shop With a Cop" and a memorial for officers killed in the line of duty.”
