The officer asked Nathan’s parents if he could pull the boy over and they agreed. The officer then bent over and gave the young boy a “ticket” that read “too fast.”

Nathan’s mom said it was her son’s first encounter with police.

“Now every time we go out somewhere and he sees a cop car he says ‘oh there’s the police,’” Heather Snow said. “So now he knows who it is, and we’re trying to teach him that those are his friends.”

Nathan’s parents add this was their first encounter with an officer who took time to stop and interact with them, and they are forever grateful for the experience.
