HEARD COUNTY, Georgia– A police officer is brought to tears by what happened during a recent traffic stop.

Heard County Sheriff’s Department Deputy Brandon Wiggins shared the touching post and video on his Facebook page.

Deputy Wiggins said during a traffic stop, he saw two vehicles pull up in front of the truck he had stopped.

“I immediately start running situations through my head, and praying for the best. I’m nervous, and praying to God that nothing is going to happen, as I get back out of my car, I see a man and a woman exiting the vehicles, my hand close to my gun and my heart pounding, all while still watching the driver of the truck.”

Wiggins said the man told him the person stopped was his son.

“I relaxed just a little and explain to him the reasoning for the stop, he then proceeded telling me about his father being in the hospital and having a stroke.”

That’s when the man grabbed Deputy Wiggins’ hand and asked to pray for him. “God bless ya’. I appreciate all that you do for us.” The man and Deputy Wiggins can then be seen bowing their heads and praying together.

“My heart sank and as he prayed for me and my brothers in blue my eyes filled with tears, I was at a loss for words, this man with all he had going on, stopped to pray for me. As I walked away I was in total shock. Thank you sir for taking time out of your day to pray for us. God bless you and your family.”
