This Police Officer Plays A Round Of Catch With A Lonely Kid While On Duty

In Rosenberg, Texas, Sgt. Ariel Soltura noticed a boy throwing a football around by his lonesome.

Sgt. Soltura slowed down and got out of the vehicle.

I saw he was throwing up a football, and I could tell he was playing by himself. He didn’t have anybody to play with. He wasn’t just waiting for more kids to arrive.

I literally got out of the car. I did like this, which is the universal sign of ‘throw me the football,’ and at that time you just saw his face lit up, and he was ready to play. At that time, he and I both connected. We began to throw the football. You can see that I’m obviously trying to get him to go along, and so we’re just playing a game of catch, and it was awesome. – Sgt. Soltura
