An Arlington police officer played the role of school bus driver Monday morning.
Corporal Brett Worman was responding to a call when 10-year old Tristan Vo'a walked up and told the officer he and his friend missed the bus and needed a ride to school.
Once the officer cleared it with Tristan's mom, the two boys got to ride in the back of a police car all the way to Della Icenhower Intermediate School in Mansfield.
“From there on, we sat in the police car. We thought it was unusual because the seats were hard in the back and there was a glass window in front of us,” Tristan said. “We didn't know what to do. And in our minds we were thinking, ‘Is this really happening?’”
Mom snapped a picture with both boys in the back seat, and Tristan even got a selfie with his friend in the police car.
Tristan also admitted he never wants to ride in the back of a police car again.
