Family Thanks GSP Trooper

A Georgia State Patrol trooper made a little boy's night over the weekend.

Matthew Gallant was driving with his family when they ran over an 18-wheeler tire on Interstate 75 over the weekend, which disabled their car. That's when Georgia State Trooper Michael Strickland was called to the scene.

Gallant shared his experience with the Georgia Department of Public Safety on Facebook:

"My 4 year old son is obsessed with police cars and police officers in general," Gallant said. "He was upset by everything that was going on until Trooper Strickland arrived and let him sit in his patrol car and turn on the lights and sirens and let him wear his trooper hat."

Gallant said Trooper Strickland was very professional and friendly. 

"[Strickland] completely made my son's night," Gallant said. "Georgia needs more state troopers like Mr. Strickland. 

The Department of Public Safety shared Mr. Gallant's post on Facebook.
