CAHOKIA, Ill.  — An officer is getting praise for his act of kindness last Wednesday.

According to local news station KTVU, Officer Roger Gemoules pulled over 22-year-old Ka’Shawn Baldwin for expired plates. Baldwin also didn’t have a valid driver’s license.

Baldwin told Gemoules that he was on his way to a job interview and had to borrow the car so he could make it. Gemoules couldn’t let Baldwin drive, so the officer drove him to the interview.

The best part: Baldwin got the job!
