Single Mom Was Terrified After Being Stopped By An Officer. Then He Handed Her This.


A woman from Montgomery County, Texas, posted this story online before Christmas, highlighting an unexpected encounter with a police officer.

My car has no registration, inspection, OR Insurance.. I know I know, Get it together, Amber! But being a single mom of 3 isn’t easy!! So I’m driving this morning to get Blaine from school and BOOM, I get pulled over. I start panicking!! On top of all that, my Drivers License is in Brian’s car.. Extra Panicked now!! The officer asks me why I haven’t gotten my tags in over a year! I explain there are things on my car that won’t pass inspection and I don’t have the money to fix them.. He asks me to step out of my car. He takes me by his motorcycle and we are talking about our kids and Christmas.. He hands me a yellow paper.. He said ‘You have no tags and no Drivers Licens on you, OR car insurance. I’m giving you a warning! And I’m giving you this.’ (Hands me an envelope) and says ‘This is on behalf of The Montgomery County Sheriffs Deptuty and myself but you have to open it in front of me.’ I opened it and it was a Christmas Card that had a $100 in it!! I broke down crying and gave Officer Ortiz probably the biggest hug he has ever received in his life!! Thank You to The Montgomery County Sheriffs Dept and Thank You To Officer Ortiz!! Not only did I get away with close to $1,000 in tickets… I came out $100 ahead!! ?? God is DEF watching out for me!!
