A police officer from the Sioux Falls Police Department received a lot of local attention in January 2022 for delivering food after a DoorDash driver got arrested. The officer had a national spotlight shining on him thanks to The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.

During Jimmy Fallon's opening monologue on Wednesday, January 26, 2022, Jimmy happily applauded this officer for his dedication.

You can just hear the laughter and shock from the crowd when Jimmy shows the short clip.

The officer's name is Sam Buhr. The video first broke on the Tea Storm Chasers Facebook page. Since then, it's been shared across the internet and news outlets in the country. Even our friends at Pigeon605 secured the exclusive story about the Sioux Falls resident who ordered the food.

Her name is Anastasia Elsinger and she is a graduate student at South Dakota State University. Anastasia tells Pigeon605 that she had a feeling something was wrong with her delivery when her DoorDash delivery tracker froze.

In fact, her DoorDash driver was only a few blocks from her Sioux Falls home. Anatasia knew her food was going to be late, but she did not expect a police officer to be on her doorstep.

Anastasia was originally not going to post the video on social media. Eventually, she changed her mind and made it a video on TikTok. This was Anastasia's first TikTok video and it currently has over 4 million likes within 24 hours. Wow!

The Sioux Falls Police Department and Officer Sam Buhr will surely never forget this assignment!

20 Things You'll Find In Every South Dakota Home

We have so many things in our homes. Some things are junk or half-used but others have great sentimental value to us.

Regardless of what an item means to us at the end of the day, I bet that most South Dakotans have these twenty items in their home; or at least most of us do.

Here Are The 7 Remaining Drive-In Theaters In South Dakota

If you were born last century...you know, in the nineteen hundreds (ugh)...you may have spent a summer evening in the car watching movies. I don't mean on your phone, I mean at the drive-in movie theater!

If you were in Sioux Falls in the 1970s and '80's you may remember seeing Jaws and Indiana Jones at The East Park or the Starlite Drive-In. Both drive-ins opened just after World War 2. The East Park didn't make it out of the '70s, closing in 1978. The Starlite survived long enough to see the birth of home video, closing in 1985.


Drive-in movies had a bit of a resurgence during the pandemic. They were a way to go out and do something social without getting out of your car.

If you tried one during that time, or you remember the fun of a warm summer evening watching movies on that giant screen there are still places in South Dakota and around Sioux Falls you can do it.
