An Ohio sheriff’s deputy last week gave a 12-year-old boy the coolest ride to school ever by driving him to class when his mom couldn’t.
The boy, identified only as Davonte by the Stark County Sheriff’s Office, had no way to get to school Wednesday because his mom was receiving medical care. Deputy Alexandria Muntean stepped in to help, according to WOIO in Cleveland.
The Sheriff’s Office identified Muntean as a school resource officer at Plain Local Schools. The department posted a photo to Facebook of Muntean and a smiling Devonte in the deputy’s patrol car, a McDonald’s bag between them.
“We sat and ate our breakfast together and, on his way to class, he went with a big smile on his face,” Muntean said. “I enjoyed his company and assured him he could always reach out for a ride or breakfast anytime.”
Davonte was given another ride to school on Thursday, the department’s post read.
“It never hurts to go beyond expectations to help someone in need,” Muntean said.
