Clint Eastwood Helps Dunwoody Police

Dunwoody, GA -- A brush with Hollywood will help Dunwoody Police raise money for Special Olympics this summer.
Clint Eastwood signed four baseballs for officers while he was filming his new movie, "Trouble with the Curve."
Eastwood and co-stars Justin Timberlake and Amy Adams were in Dunwoody last week to shoot scenes on the baseball field at Dunwoody High School.
Dunwoody Police plan to put the baseballs up for auction online this summer to raise money for Special Olympics.
"We approached him about signing baseballs for the Special Olympics work that we do at the police department, and he gladly did," said Dunwoody Police Sgt. Fidel Espinoza.
"He was just very down to earth, very approachable," Sgt. Espinoza said. "We were most impressed with that."
Sgt. Espinoza said Eastwood also agreed to take pictures with the officers.
"He began talking to us about his work as the Honorary Chair of the National Law Enforcement Museum and Monument in Washington," Sgt. Espinoza said.
"Trouble with the Curve" is expected to be released in September.
