This is the moment a farmer was pulled over by police, only to be given a pleasant surprise.

Gary Girodat, 49, was driving with his son Damien, 28, and his daughter-in-law Rachael, 26, when he was pulled over by a policeman.

The policeman initially states that he pulled Gary over for a flickering tail-light, before giving him a citation for ‘driving like a grandpa’ and an ultrasound of his grandchild.

Damien, a police officer, from North Dakota, USA, said: “My wife and I were thinking about cool ideas of how to announce her pregnancy to my father, and we wanted to incorporate my profession somehow.

“We thought of this idea so I talked to my colleague that I know through police training and ran the idea by him.

“He asked his supervisor and got it cleared, and we met up about half an hour before he stopped my dad, where I filled out the citation myself.

“The reaction from my dad was better than I was expecting, he was so happy and couldn’t stop talking about it for the rest of the day.”
