LEWISVILLE, Texas -- A police officer in Texas found a very personal way to protect and serve.

Officer Jeremy Reyna pulled over Nicole Dean Saturday and noticed that her little boy's car seat looked pretty run-down.

Dean bought it second-hand because she couldn't afford a better one.

Instead of writing her a ticket, he took her fiance to a local store and bought the family a brand new car seat.

"I looked at him and I couldn't justify putting my daughter in that car seat. How could I let them drive off with that with no other help?," Officer Reyna said.

Officer Reyna's own daughter is just 16-months-old.
