WATCH: Cop Escorts Elderly Woman Cruising A Scooter/Cart Going A Whopping 3 MPH… “Just Trying To Get Her Back Home”


What looked like a slow-speed police pursuit in northern Washington state was actually a state trooper helping an elderly woman get home safely…


Here we have another encounter between law enforcement and a citizen and this one is getting a lot of attention! But, this time it isn’t a shooting or brutality or anything bad- this is awesome!!!

Drivers and residents saw what appeared to be a slow-speed pursuit and started posting on social media.
The video shows what looks like a trooper trying to pull over a woman on the highway. But the woman, who is over 80-years-old was cruising a motorized scooter/cart with a maximum speed of a whopping 6 MPH!  LOL!
The officer wasn’t trying to pull her over but was in fact providing an escort! How awesome!
KOMO News reports:
Troopers were inundated with phone calls. They later revealed it wasn’t a typical police pursuit — but an act in pursuit of kindness.
“I wasn’t trying to stop her. I wasn’t trying to detain her. I was just trying to get her back to her home,” said Trooper Dave Hintz with the Washington State Patrol. “I just treated her the way I would’ve wanted somebody to treat my mom.”
The woman had gone out for coffee in Lynden Tuesday afternoon, but got lost while trying to get home, troopers said. When Hintz caught up with her, she was nearly four miles from her house and continuing to head in the wrong direction.
“It’s a pretty major state route where semis and cars travel,” he added.
Newly-released dash cam video shows Hintz’s interaction with the woman, who has not been identified.
“There’s no license plate. She’s in a little… cart,” Hintz is heard saying over the police radio.
“We’re getting a ton of calls about you,” he says to her, after asking her to pull over. “Everybody’s worried about you because you’ve been on and off the road.”
For several minutes, the woman insists she knows where she is going. At one point, she even pulls out a map. At another, she gets stuck on the side of the road.
“Let’s see if we can get you out of here,” Hintz says to the woman. “Just don’t tip (the scooter),’ she chides him.
It took more than an hour to get the woman back home, with the duo heading down the state highway at about 3 1/2 mph..
The woman can’t walk, troopers said. They could have called an ambulance, but that would have also required finding a way to get the scooter home, too.
Here’s the video!

LYNDEN, WA- What looked like a slow-speed police pursuit in northern Washington state was actually a state trooper helping an elderly woman get home safely. Video shows the trooper trying to pull the woman over on a highway. The 80-year old was on a motorized scooter Tuesday going about six miles an hour.Dave Hintz says he realized she was lost and was trying to get back home.

She had gone out for coffee and ended up miles from her house, and going in the wrong direction.

Hintz says he followed her to make sure she got back safely.

It was an act of kindness that he says is part of the of an officer’s responsibility.

The elderly woman has not been identified.

Hintz says in his 20-plus years in law enforcement, this was certainly a first.

We applaud Trooper Hintz and thank him for his service! God Bless. Dean James III% AMERICA’S FREEDOM FIGHTERS
