Brown County Sheriff’s deputy gives family in need gift cards for Christmas during traffic stop

BROWN COUNTY (CBS 58) – A deputy with the Brown County’s Sheriff Office brightened up the holiday season for one Wisconsin family.

According to a post by the department, while a deputy was making a traffic stop, he noticed kids in the back seat. The driver was telling the deputy about recent hardships when the deputy asked how Christmas is looking for the family this year.

The department says the driver put his head down in silence. Instead of giving the driver citations for minor violations, the deputy handed the driver gift cards. The department says the driver was shocked.

Shortly after the exchange, the driver’s wife called the sheriff’s department to thank the officer.
