The caption for the image, posted by Melissa F. Caballero, said that the Fort Wayne cop, who was later identified as Ricky Howard, was talking to a few kids from his car when he noticed that one of boy’s shoe was untied.
He got out of his vehicle and tied the boy's shoe.
One of the comments on Caballero’s page was: “Yesterday on our way to your house, we saw a police officer playing basketball with a little boy on the court in your complex! Idk if it's the same one, or if the boy was the officers son, but we thought it was cool!”
Another was: “That is wonderful.”
