Cop Stops Woman For Broken Tail Lights, Fixes Her Lights, No Ticket
A police officer pulled over Chy-Niece Thacker in Richmond, Virginia for her broken tail lights, but instead of ticketing her, the officer fixed the problem.
Thacker recalled the incident on Facebook:
So this happened just now. I’m on my way to go to my interview this morning when I get pulled. Both brake lights decided to go out this time. As he walked to the car and I was pulling out my stuff, he quickly said, “Don’t worry about pulling anything out. I just want you to know that your brake lights are out.” So I’m immediately upset, because I just got them replaced like last month.
So I explained to him how Firestone wants to charge me $600 just to run a test on the wiring of the car. He looked at me like and told me to pop the trunk. He checked the lights in the trunk and tapped them, but they didn’t come on. So he told me to pop the hood to check the relay box then asked me to get out to check the other one. He could’ve easily given me a ticket, but Officer Jenkins stepped out of officer role and into mechanic role to make sure I was straight. #HesABlessing
