UNION COUNTY, Ore. — Several Oregon State Police Troopers are getting recognition on social media after a traffic stop in Union County took a twist.
The Troopers were involved in a “multi-agency incident” where a driver was eluding police. OSP was eventually able to pull the driver over, but said once the car stopped, the suspect got out and ran from the Troopers, abandoning his son in the process.
According to OSP, the man was ultimately taken into custody by the Union County Sheriff’s Office.
But while an OSP Trooper was assisting on the case, they learned that it was the little boy’s 7th birthday.
“While talking to the child during the traumatic event, the Trooper learned that the little boy wanted a remote-control monster truck for his birthday,” said OSP.
The next day, several Troopers brought the little boy his birthday present.
