Pulled Over for Speeding, Grieving Man Stunned When Officer Drives Him 100 Miles to be With Family

TROY, Ohio — After finding out his teenage sister had been killed in a car accident over the weekend, Mark Ross said he wanted to be with his mother as soon as he could.

Without a vehicle, Ross said that he convinced someone he knew to drive, and jumped in the man's car just after 3 a.m. Sunday in Indiana.  Ross wrote in a Facebook post that they were speeding through Ohio, bound for Detroit, when the lights flashed behind them.

"I knew I was going to jail due to a petty warrant," Ross wrote.

Ross was in the passenger seat of the car when Trooper J. Davis pulled them over, and the driver had a suspended license and an outstanding warrant as well, according to Inside Edition.

Trooper Davis ended up taking the driver into custody and having the car towed, which left Ross stranded in Ohio.

Ross explained what happened next when Ohio State Highway Patrol Sergeant David Robison arrived:

"I broke down crying and he saw the sincerity in my cry. He REACHES OVER AND BEGAN PRAYING OVER ME AND MY FAMILY. He offered to bring me 100 miles further to Detroit because they towed the vehicle. Everybody knows how much I dislike Cops but I am truly Greatful (sic) for this Guy. He gave me hope"

True to his word, Robison drove Ross more than 100 miles to a Detroit coffee shop where he could meet his cousin.

"It was just so overwhelming," Ross told Inside Edition. "They were trying to help us."

Ross and his family said they are so grateful for Robison's generosity, and that the sergeant has even promised to attend the funeral.

    When the story said “man stunned” I thought they meant stunned by stungun. When I noticed that wasn’t the case, I lost interest. But I did notice how the BLM gangsta managed to get a selfie with the cop who he hates while grieving.

      You are such an ssAhole. What makes this man a gangsta? Just because he doesn’t like cops doesn’t make him a gangsta. You ever thought that perhaps there is a reason he doesn’t like cops? I’m sure there are a lot of people who doesn’t like you. I don’t like you and I never met you. So I feel sorry for people who actually know you personally. A creep by any other name would still be you…

    I thought all cops were bad and deserved to be killed?? TOTALLY BEING SARCASTIC!! Most of them are simply doing their jobs and are people with families and loved ones, just like the people that hate them. Of course just like anything there will be bad ones; and that is not limited to profession or race. At the end of the day, we are all Americans (those here legally) and should do everything we can to strengthen our country and not tear it down.
