State Trooper Pulls Over Cop Who Delivered Him Almost 27 Years Ago

When he was a rookie, he got called to a house on that street 27 years ago and helped to deliver a baby.

Fate brought together two men almost three decades after they briefly met.

Bailly revealed he used to work as a police officer in Patterson's hometown of Piscataway and told the story of an instance in which he helped deliver a baby outside a home there as a rookie officer.

"My name is Michael Patterson, sir", he told Bailly, extending his hand.

A traffic stop in New Jersey ended with a surprise reunion when a state trooper pulled over the police officer who delivered him as a baby 27 years earlier.

It turned out that Trooper Patterson is also from Piscataway, and they got to talking. Michael says he's very familiar with the story because his mother tells it to him every single year, it's a tradition. "Thank you for delivering me", according to the New Jersey State Police. But once Patterson discovered who he was speaking to, he gave Bailly a warning and let him off without a ticket.

But the presidential press corps were not invited to that function for military families. Turned out fewer than ten players were going to show up.

After that revelation about their connection, Patterson delivered Bailly a first-class handshake instead of a summons. "He was even able to describe the color, style of house, and the baby's name, Michael".

New Jersey State Police Department confirmed to the BBC that Mr Bailly had been stopped because of his vehicle's tinted windows.

We're not sure what the odds are of this happening-maybe they're close to the odds of a hole-in-one, winning the lottery, or being struck by lightning-but it happened.

Bailly was the officer who responded, and the Patterson's doctor talked Bailly through the delivery. Police say Patterson's mother had been out shopping on October 5, 1991 when she went into labor.

The police department said: "Trooper Patterson, Matthew Bailly, and both of their families were ecstatic about the reunion".
