Man's traffic ticket came with $100 gift from officer

WYLIE, TX (KCTV) -

Almost everyone gets upset when they get pulled over for a traffic ticket, but for one Texas man, it restored his faith.

Hayden Carlo was recently pulled over for having an expired license plate, and told the officer that he had been struggling to support his family lately.

Carlo was faced with the choice of putting dinner on the table or renewing his tags.

However, the officer still gave him a ticket. But also inside the envelope was a $100 bill.

"He helped me out when I needed it, and I appreciate that I'll never forget that man. It definitely restored my faith in God," Carlo said.

The officer didn't want to be identified, but his co-workers say he felt the man needed the money more than he did.

Carlo used the $100 to renew his and his wife's registration.
