Trooper Asks Girl if Her Dad Should Get Speeding Ticket, Her Response is Priceless

When this dad was pulled over for speeding, the trooper wasn't the only one who was unamused.

Indiana State Trooper Darrick Scott stopped Dwayne Ellrich on I-65 on Saturday and saw his daughter, Ashley, inside the car.

In an attempt to ease her nerves, Scott made Ashley, who has Down syndrome, an honorary state trooper and asked her whether she thought her dad should get a ticket or a warning.

She said he should get a ticket.

Luckily for Mr Ellrich, the trooper was feeling slightly more charitable and only issued him a warning.

The relieved dad shared the incident to Facebook, where he posted a picture of Ashley wearing the kind-hearted trooper's hat. 

 

Thanks for posting this Dwayne Ellrich...Trooper Scott is a fine example of what the ISP hopes to represent. And we are extra glad that Ashley is on our side!

"Trooper Scott is a fine example of what the ISP hopes to represent," they said. "And we are extra glad that Ashley is on our side!"

The trooper told WRTV that he was surprised by Ashley's answer.

He added: "It's just reassuring to know there are people out there who are supportive of law enforcement."
