It’s never a fun time when you see police car lights flashing behind you.
For Ka’Shawn Baldwin, the fact that he was illegally driving to a job interview, made those lights flashing behind him all the more daunting.
The 22-year-old from Cahokia, Illinois, was pulled over by Officer Roger Gemoules for driving a car with expired plates and no license. Instead of issuing him a ticket, though, the officer offered Baldwin a ride.
When Baldwin was pulled over he told Officer Gemoules that he was on his way to a job interview and had no other means of transportation.
“He was very respectful when I pulled him over and you could just tell – I could feel that he really was wanting to get to this job interview,” said Gemoules.
When he heard the young man’s story, he decided to give him a ride to the interview. Baldwin was only a few minutes late, but ended up landing the job and was extremely grateful to Gemoules for helping him get there.
