Wyoming Highway Patrol trooper Momen Elazizi grew up in Egypt where he was a professional tennis player. He moved to the USA when he was 26 years old and relocated to Wyoming after obtaining his American citizenship.

I chose Wyoming obviously for a reason. Growing up I heard about Wyoming, I heard about Jackson Hole, I heard about Yellowstone, and the North Platte River. That's my backyard.

The trooper shares his story about joining the WHP in a video produced by the Highway Patrol and posted to their YouTube page.
