WATCH: Police Officer Stops To Toss Football with Boy Playing On His Own


This police drive-by took an unexpected turn when a Summerville Police Department officer got out of his cruiser not to fight a crime or respond to a disturbance, but instead to toss around a football with a boy playing on his lawn all by himself.

The South Carolina boy’s mother said the cop saw him playing by himself and stopped for just a couple of minutes to get in on the fun.

She sent her home surveillance video to the department along with a note saying, "My son was throwing the football up to himself in the yard and your officer noticed and stopped to play for a couple minutes. This made my sons day and I wanted this officer to know.... he rocks!!!"

This certainly was one playdate he won’t soon forget!
