HEARD COUNTY, Ga. — A Georgia sheriff’s deputy received a pleasant surprise when a man he pulled over for running a stop sign asked him to pray, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

In a Facebook post that has gone viral, Heard County Sheriff’s Deputy Brandon Wiggins pulled a man over for running a stop sign, and as he was writing the warning, two vehicles pulled in front of his car.

“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 in the post.

According to the post, a man jumps out of the car and identifies himself as the father of the person he pulled over, explaining they’re on their way to the hospital to see their grandfather, who recently suffered from a stroke.

“Before he left he grabbed my hand and asked to pray for me,” he said. “My heart sank and has 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.”

He ended the post by thanking the man and his family for their prayers.

The moment was captured in a dash camera video that made into Facebook:
