My knee will occasionally catch, at which time a minor adjustment with my hand kind of unlocks the knee?

I am a 40 year old male. I am healthy and active and on no medications. I have been having right knee issues that come and go. The knee will occasionally catch, at which time a minor adjustment with my hand kind of unlocks the knee for free movement again, but this seems to cause some pain, swelling, and stiffness for the few days that follow the catching. The pain is pretty mild. I do jog and lift weights fairly often, but have not been putting the knee through too much stress. I am attaching an mri report that I had done a few days ago and will have to wait some time before seeing an ortho. I am at work full duty (police officer), but had the mri due to twisting my knee slightly at work recently, that again caused some tightness and swelling. Currently the swelling is down and it feels pretty good, but there is quite often kind of a bone on bone sensation when I walk. Looking for advice but most importantly, does this look like a report that will lead a dr to suggest surgery or are there less invasive ways to deal with this? Thank you.
