CHARLOTTE, N.C. (FOX 46 CHARLOTTE) - Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police officers are always getting results, but one in particular went the extra mile, literally, to make sure a child got home safe.
The CMPD officer, Sgt. Jeffrey Wheaton, stepped in Tuesday afternoon when the little boy got off of the school bus. Just moments before there was a police chase in the area.
Due to traffic and police activity, he wanted to make sure the child made it to his house OK.
I caught a @cmpd officer going out of his way to make sure a young boy got home safe after getting off of the bus near an active scene following a police chase. The officer told me he wanted to make sure the boy was safe since there was more traffic in the area. pic.twitter.com/TzkXwE9WQj— 𝗕𝗿𝗶𝗮𝗻 𝗖𝗵𝗿𝗶𝘀𝘁𝗶𝗮𝗻𝘀𝗲𝗻 (@BrianFox46) March 19, 2019
