Cop Stops To Play Football – Dashcam Footage Goes Viral [Video]

This police officer answered a different kind of distress call when he saw a little boy playing alone with his football on Saturday.

Sgt. Ariel Soltura was on patrol Saturday when he noticed a little boy playing by himself, with a football, in his apartment complex in Rosenberg, TX.
He acknowledges that he could have just kept driving, but something made him stop. “I literally got out of the car.” he said. I did like this, which is the universal sign of ‘throw me the ball,’ and at that time you just saw his face light up, and he was ready to play. At that time, he and I both connected.”

Sgt. Soltura says that the dashcam footage of his kindness to the little boy is an affirmation of his department’s policy to be good neighbors, not just adversaries, in the communities that they serve.

The footage was uploaded to the Rosenberg PD Facebook page and received 3,000 likes and 4,000 shares within 24 hours.

When asked why he thought the video was having such an impact, Sgt. Soltura offered this thought. “It’s important because we all live in this world together. We all make an impact in this world and make it a better place.”
