Fundraiser held for fallen Boone County Deputy Pickett's family


BOONE COUNTY, Ind. (WTHR) — It's been about two months since Boone County Deputy Jacob Pickett was killed in the line of duty, and Wednesday night, more support rolled in for his family.

Applebee's in Central Indiana will be donating a portion of last night's proceeds to the fallen officer's family.

'It's a great way to bring in other clientele as well as supporting people in the community to give them more of the opportunity that they need to get the things for their family that they might not be able to get without it," said Applebees manager, Cathrina Mercer.

At this time, it's unclear how much money the restaurant was able to raise.
