Very interesting. Classic MIB story.
I do recall recently seeing footage of a large flatbed with, what clearly appeared to be a saucer on the back.
Was there any press on this event?

It may not have been completely assembled, but even if it was, aircraft are transported on dollies, laying on their bellies. If the sit on their landing gear the are too tall and unstable. Most of the time they don`t have a police escort, unless they`re in a high risk area. Most people aren`t going to try to steal 3/4ths of an airplane that they can`t move. So usually the escort is just a pair of pilot cars.

Also, let's assume that it was a recovered UFO.
Would it not be a tad on the unsafe side transporting it so close to civilians? What if it exploded? or the bindings holding it down broke and the object crashed into oncoming traffic? Or there was intense radiation emanating from it?

Go back and reread the OP....I don't believe he ever referred that they met in person at this home. the only reference to the officers home was when he said he had to end the interview because his family had just arrived home and he didn't want them exposed to any of this.
I believe it was an interview via the internet.

I just thought of something. Wouldn't the following statement make it fairly easy to narrow down the identity of the officer? Does anyone know if any officers were prosecuted (for any reason) or dismissed from the Dallas Police Department since this story broke? Assuming that this is true and because he didn't write back, I hope that he and his family are okay.
The officer, who was an 8 year veteran of the Dallas Police Department, was assigned to normal street patrol in a particular section of the city (again information has been withheld per his request).

This is one of the threads
He was instructed if the drivers were already on the interstate, to pull them over and hold them there until the convoy passed, using his car and himself, if possible to shield the driver and any passengers from seeing the flatbed as it passed by and continued down the road.

Here is some good ol' ATS coverage of the event itself:
landing on i20? thread
I am so certain I saw a clear as day video of a saucer on a flatbed. It is a real loss I can't find it right now.
It might be the video that no longer works in this thread about the event, but I can't tell:
Allegedly UFO was Transported down Dallas Highway
