Michigan Cop Buys Mom A Car Seat Instead Of Giving Her Ticket
A cash-strapped Michigan mom got pulled over for a traffic violation but didn’t receive a ticket — she got a helping hand.
Via NY Daily News reports:
The cop noticed that Lexi DeLorenzo’s daughter was not sitting in a car seat so he told her to follow him to a nearby Walmart, where he bought her one.
“You are an amazing man, and I will never forget the kindness and compassion you showed me, and you also showed my daughter and myself that there are people out there that care,” she wrote on Facebook.
Officer Ben Hall of Emmett Township was on routine traffic patrol before he crossed paths with DeLorenzo on Friday night, the department of public safety said.
After getting pulled over, DeLorenzo explained that she understood the importance of car seats for children’s safety but has recently had a stroke of bad luck.
Due to financial hardships, she says she lost a few things, including her children’s car seats.
Apparently, Hall thought it was time to lift a burden rather than add another.
Must be nice!
