Transcript for Police Officer Plays Catch With Boy Playing Alone
All right, time for "Play of the day." So normally when we show you dash cam video from a police cruiser, it's something disturbing like a fight or a chase or something nasty. But look at this cruiser on patrol in the neighborhood. This is Rosenberg, Texas, the officer spots that little boy right there playing with a football all by himself so gets out of the car. The next thing you know he's playing catch with the kid for several minutes sending him long on a few passes. The police department tweeted the clip out with the following words while a two-minute game of football might not mean anything to some, it could mean everything understandably and justifiably this has gone viral. I understand what is going on despite the fact I watched "Downton abbey" last night. It's changing lives. Changing lives. What a great citizen. Absolutely. I'm proud they sent that out. People are loving it. Going to dunk it next?
