ROSENBERG, Texas — Millions have now watched as a Rosenberg Police officer stops and tosses a football with a little boy who was playing alone.

Cameras were rolling as the officer and the 10-year-old reunited.

“That's going to be an impact on my son's life for the rest of his life,” said mother, Tynesha Mathews. Sgt. Ariel Soltura exchanged phone numbers with the boy, Jermaine Ford, and told him “We are friends for life buddy.” He also gave the 10-year-old a tour of his cruiser.
