Texas Cop Gives $100 To Needy Motorist

December 13, 2012  | 

A Plano (Texas) Police officer tucked a $100 bill into a citation, after a motorist with expired tags told him he chose to feed his family rather than pay his vehicle registration fee.

The officer, who has asked to remain anonymous, had pulled over Hayden Carlo, who told him he simply didn't have the money to pay the fee.

"He helped me out when I needed it, and I appreciate that," Carlo told KHOU. I'll never forget the man. It definitely restored my faith in God."

This action is what real Police officers do! There are many other ways that we help people that have the same result. God bless this Officer for I am PROUD to cll him my law enforcement BROTHER! The sad thing is that one bad action from an Officer will make the public forget about the good that Officers do every day.

Well done, sir. Probably smart to remain anonymous too.

It's nice he got noticed, but I had a Sergeant that would give everything he had on him to people broken down. A lot of cops go the extra mile and very few ever get thanked for it. We all do what we are able to do in our own way, I think so many of us wanted to be angels rather than cops.
