His mom says he's shy, and doesn't give hugs to just anybody.

Tyler (T.J.) and his mom Jamie were at a McDonald's in Fort Worth, Texas, having breakfast. T.J. spotted a real-life motorcycle cop, who had come inside to get out of the rain. His name is Officer Colter, and everybody in town knows him.

T.J. asked the officer if he could ride his motorcycle, to which Colter replied, "I don't think my boss would appreciate me taking you out." Instead, the officer went outside and grabbed him a sticker badge.

And that's when T.J. asked if he could give him a hug.

His mom says she wants to make sure that her son and daughter know to respect law enforcement. Looks like she's doing a great job!
