Sgt. Ariel Soltura, a police sergeant in Rosenberg, Texas, outside of Houston, was slowly cruising through an apartment complex on Jan. 18, when he saw a 10-year-old boy outside by himself.
Soltura noticed the boy was holding a football, so he stopped his car, got out — and began playing a quick game of catch.
“It’s important because we all live in this world together. We all make an impact in this world, and I think it’s important that we all put in our little bit and make it a better place,” said Soltura.
The dash cam video has gone viral, and the Rosenberg Police Department Facebook page posted this message:
