Ka’Shawn Baldwin was headed to a job interview when he got pulled over. The 22 year old had borrowed the car and didn't know the license plates had expired... and he didn't have a valid driver's license. Procedure requires that the car can't stay on the road but Officer Roger Gemoules says he could tell Baldwin was respectful and trying to do the right thing. So when Baldwin asked if Gemoules could drive him to the interview, he agreed. They arrived... a few minutes late... but Baldwin got the job. He shared the story on social media along with many thanks to Officer Gemoules.
