CAHOKIA, Ill. (KMOX) - A Cahokia Illinois Police officer made a life-changing experience happen on Wednesday after he decided not to write a ticket for someone driving without a license on expired plates.

Officer Roger Gemoules pulled the driver over who explained that he was out of options because he had to get to a job interview. So instead of writing a ticket and taking up more of the driver's time, Gemoules decided to take him to the job interview. 

And they got the job.

A post in a Cahokia community Facebook page explained the story saying, “He wouldn’t let me drive away cause my L’s suspended so the police gave me a ride to my interview  & I got it WONT HE DO IT ”

Another post says it is "a great example of how community oriented policing actually works."
