Woman Gets a Warning for Speeding but Receives Something Unexpected in the Mail

Gina Headen, from Illinois, was pulled over for speeding. She was surprised by the treatment she received.

Headen told KMOV of Deputy Hill, “I'm so blessed he was the one who pulled me over that day." She also wrote on Facebook, “While I sat and waited I was reminiscing about my dad like always lately. The officer returned to my car and said its your lucky day, we were born on the same day and year, slow down and have a good day. I smiled and said thank you. He walked away and I broke down and started crying. Thinking he was back in his car. He surprised me and tapped on my window asking if I was ok. I told him I was sad, I just lost my dad. He said take a minute and breath. He talked to me a minute then helped me back into traffic.”

Then, Headen received a card in the mail from Hill. Headen shared her post on Facebook, and it has been shared 26,000 times. Headen told KMOV, “I just thought people need to know good police officers out there who care for their community."

Headen said he and his colleagues do similar gestures, but it has never gotten this type of attention. He added, “We are not just here to send people to jail [and to] write tickets. We help when we can."
