That Is Definitely Not How You Pronounce That Name

Louisville Metro Police Officer Deidre Mengedoht was killed during a traffic stop right before Christmas, when her cruiser was rammed by a truck driver, who was later charged with murder and operating a vehicle under the influence. On a Dec. 29 broadcast, WPSD’s Brianna Clark reported on her funeral and ended up saying “Dee Dee Megadoodoo.”

In Clark’s defense, “Dee Dee” was actually Mengedoht’s nickname. Not sure about that last part.
