Little Girl Falls Asleep on Cop Who Offered to Babysit Her While Dad Was in Court

(INSIDE EDITION) A Utah cop with a heart of gold offered to help a dad in need of a babysitter recently and now footage of the good deed is going viral.

It all started when the dad was awaiting his hearing at a Utah County court along with his highly active two-year-old daughter.

When the man's scheduled hearing time arrived, he tried to take his daughter into court, where children aren't allowed.

The dad was at a loss for what to do when Officer Kevin Norris of the Orem Police Department stepped in to the rescue.

"You'll see from the court surveillance video that the little girl took to Officer Norris as he walked her around, getting drinks of water and treats from the Deputies at the front door," the department wrote in a Facebook post along with surveillance footage from inside the courthouse.

Officer Norris, who was waiting to appear at his own court hearing, kept the girl entertained on his lap by showing her cartoons on his cellphone.

Even more adorably, the little girl ended up falling asleep on the officer's lap.

"You can tell that Officer Norris is a father first and police officer second!" reads the post.

The Facebook video had been viewed nearly 100,000 times just hours after it was posted by Orem police.

Last week, Officer Norris was waiting to testify in a hearing when he saw a very rambunctious two year old waiting with her father (Who also had a court case) in the lobby. The father had a court case scheduled and was unable to leave the little girl at home. When it was time for his case to be heard he tried to take his daughter into court with him. However, kids are not allowed in the court room for various reasons and the girls father didn't know what to do.......That was until Officer Norris offered to babysit for the man. You'll see from the court surveillance video that the little girl took to Officer Norris as he walked her around, getting drinks of water and treats from the Deputies at the front door. He pulled up some cartoons on his cell phone and the little girl climbed up onto his lap and she must've been worn out from all running around she had done because she quickly fell asleep on Officer Norris' lap.You can tell that Officer Norris is a father first and police officer second!
