Michigan cop buys struggling mom a car seat for her daughter

Bravo, Officer Hall!

Instead of giving a mom a ticket during a traffic stop, a Michigan police officer lent a helping hand.

On Friday, Officer Ben Hall responded to a call about a young child riding in a vehicle without a car seat.

When he pulled over the car, the driver, Alexis DeLorenzo, admitted her wrong but confessed she “hit a really bad financial situation” and couldn’t afford a proper booster seat for her 5-year-old daughter.

Instead of issuing her a ticket, Hall offered to meet DeLorenzo at a nearby Walmart where he could purchase a car seat for her.

“A ticket doesn’t solve the situation. What solves it, is the child being in a booster seat like she should be. Easiest $50 I ever spent,” explained Officer Hall.
