Chy-Niece Thacker recently took pictures of a Henrico County, Virginia, police officer with his back turned after he’d pulled her over because of her brake lights. She posted the photos onto her Facebook page.
The post received more than 10,000 likes.
When most people get pulled over by a police officer for having faulty brake lights, the interaction usually ends in a ticket or a warning.
It didn’t end that way for Chy-Niece.
As soon as the cop — Officer Jenkins — pulled her over, she quickly began to collect her license and registration.
But he stopped her.
“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,'” Chy-Niece wrote on her Facebook post.
She began getting upset as she had recently replaced her brake lights and would have to spend more money to get the wiring checked.
That’s when Officer Jenkins asked her 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.”
That’s when she snapped the photos of Officer Jenkins doing something completely unexpected.
Check out what the officer did for Chy-Niece in the video below, and please SHARE it on Facebook!
