A viral new video shows a Virginia police officer pulling over drivers issuing a sweet surprise.
In Halifax, Virginia, Officer Brian Warner is shown walking up to a car he just pulled over, asking the driver if she knew why she was stopped.
To the surprise of the driver and her passenger, the officer informed them that it’s “against the law” to drive on a hot day without an ice cream cone. Officer Warner and Chief Kevin Lands immediately issued an ice cream to both driver and the passenger.
The driver burst into laughter saying. “Oh, my god. I was so scared…”
According to WSET-TV, the officers pulled over twenty drivers to give them ice cream cones.
Officer Warner spoke about the driver seen in the video, “Her reaction was absolutely the best. It was genuine, and she had us smiling and laughing for a good hour afterward. I’ve probably watched the video myself 50 times just laughing.”
The video, uploaded by Halifax Police Chief Kevin Lands, has been viewed more than 4.8 million times on Facebook.
