Patrolman offers to help man he pulled over for speeding

Mark E. Ross was heading home to Detroit from Ohio over the weekend shortly after learning that his sister had been killed in an automobile accident when an Ohio State patrolman pulled him over for speeding.

Ross had "a petty warrant" out for him in Wayne County, Ohio, and his car was thus towed. He broke down crying in front of the officer and explained that his sister had died and he needed to get home.

The officer immediately offered to drive him the 100 plus miles it would take him to get to his family. Ross shared a picture of himself and the officer and wrote, "Everybody knows how much I dislike Cops but I am truly Greatful [sic] for this Guy. He gave me hope."
