Standing before the Henry J. Daly Metropolitan Police Headquarters — so named for a slain officer — police officers remembered another one of their own Monday, Sgt. Clinton Holtz, a 6-foot-11-inch Capitol Police sergeant with a lot of friends and a lot of nicknames.  

“Affectionately known by friends and colleagues as ‘the gentle giant,’ ‘eagle one’ and ‘stretch,’ he was known for his commanding presence, height, smile, booming voice and special way of telling hilarious stories that would keep everyone laughing for hours,” Chief Kim C. Dine, said during a memorial service honoring deceased local law enforcement officers.
