Chargers visit wounded detective in hospital

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - He was wounded in a shootout with a suspected child molester last month. On Friday, sheriff's detective Ali Perez got a special visit from three San Diego Chargers.

Cam Thomas, Antonio Garay and Vaughn Martin visited the  hospital and gave Detective Perez an autographed cap, shirt and football. Perez also took a short walk with the players and gave Thomas a pair of red hospital socks. Thomas says he will have the socks at Sunday's game for good luck.

Perez is making great strides in his recovery. He released a message Friday thanking the public for their love and support and vowing to return to work once he recovers.
