CMPD officer gives young boy police badge in exchange for soda, "made his night"

- A little boy's face was lit up with joy thanks to a Charlotte Mecklenburg police officer who gave the boy his very own police "badge." 

Carlos Danyel was glowing in the photo he took with Officer Caleb Costner on Monday night, proudly holding up his "badge." 

Carlos's mother shared the picture to her Facebook page, saying the officer was on a call when he began talking with the family. When he told them that he had never tried a Brazilian soda, they offered him one. 

In return, the officer gave little Carlos the "badge" that his mother says "made his night." She thanked Officer Costner for being so caring and friendly, and thanked all officers for their service.
