No parent wants to see their child pulled over. So when Ashley Crawford witnessed a police car pull her son over in his vehicle, what did she do? She brought out her camera of course.
Jaxon, Crawford’s 3-year-old son, loves riding around in his toy car. Tuesday, while out with her son, Crawford noticed a local Louisville, Ky. police officer dealing with a minor car wreck on her street and came up with a brilliant idea.
“I thought, ‘How cute would it be if I got a picture of Jaxon pulled over?’” Crawford told Yahoo Parenting. “I waited for him to finish up with his incident report and asked him if he wouldn’t mind turning the lights on and pulling Jaxon over.”
Officer Bill Mayo was more than happy to go along with the plan.
“I placed Jaxon’s car on the street, and he was so excited,” Crawford said. “When we first moved to Louisville a few months ago, he was scared of sirens, but now he loves them and he loves firetrucks. When he saw the sirens on our street he just kept yelling, ‘Look, Mommy, look!’”
Officer Mayo and Jax spent the next 20 minutes playing hide-and-go-seek and giving each other high-fives and hugs.
“He went above and beyond just so my son would smile,” Crawford said. “I think it’s important to see that police officers aren’t people you should be scared of. They are the people you should turn to for help.”
