NICHOLASVILLE, Ky. (WTVQ) – Getting pulled over by an officer usually ends up costing a driver money but it actually paid off for some drivers in Nicholasville after Southland Christian Church and the Nicholasville Police Department teamed up to give drivers a surprise gift.
Video posted by Southland Christian Church shows Nicholasville officers pulling over drivers for minor infractions.
In the body cam video, the officers are seen talking to the drivers about the infractions and, instead of handing them a ticket, they are handed an envelope with $500 cash in it.
One woman who was pulled over for expired tags on her truck explained the truck belonged to her husband who died last year.
“You do not know what a big help this is,” she told the officer when he handed her the money.
