This is the kind of dashcam video we usually see. Police chases and general mayhem. Which makes this dashcam video remarkable and unforgettable.
Saturday afternoon, Rosenberg Police Sergeant Ariel Soltura was on patrol, driving through an apartment complex parking lot when he saw a young man. He slowed down.
Soltura could have continued driving. Instead he stopped.
Two men as Soltura says playing football on a perfect day. Rosenberg PD posted it on Facebook. Hours later, it had a about a quarter million likes. Truth be told, Soltura says, it's part of the department's emphasis on community policing - not as adversaries, but as neighbors. And what was captured on this dashcam video has gone viral. In a good way.
On this day, in this place, you could say that's what happened. All because of a kid with a football without anyone to throw it to, until a police officer arrived and threw it long.
