There may have been plenty of bad stories about police in recent weeks, but an NBA star has captured an emotional moment between a cop and a homeless man. Indiana Pacers center Roy Hibbert said the cop flashed his lights and pulled over, but when he got out of the car, instead of arresting the man, he handed him a spare pair of boots. Hibbert posted a picture to his Instagram account yesterday, saying: 'Just seen an Indy police officer pull over. Go into his trunk and give a homeless guy a pair of shiny boots.' Daily Mail

Hibbert said that when the officer handed the shoes over, the homeless man appeared to thank him, but the cop didn't respond and instead just climbed back into his car and drove away. Hibbert said he has since contacted the police department to try and track down the officer in order to give him free tickets to a basketball game. Daily Mail
