ROSENBERG, TX (CNN) - A kid with a football caught the attention of a police officer in Rosenberg, TX.
A dash cam video shows the officer pull over, get out, and start to play catch.
Sergeant Ariel Soltura says he noticed the boy by himself, tossing a football up and down in his hands.
Soltura had just finished a traffic stop, and he decided to stop for a bit and play "some toss."
The officer says he didn't want to be intrusive, so he left after tossing the ball back and forth a few times.
He says he's done this kind of thing before - just trying to engage kids in the community, whether they're playing with a football, riding bikes, or skateboarding.
Soltura says it helps officers appear more human and encourages co-operation with the public.
