Motorists in the US town of in Halifax, Virginia received a pleasant
surprise after they were pulled over by local police officers Chief
Kevin Lands and Officer Brian Warner.
Footage of the prank, posted to Facebook by Chief Lands, shows the
officers stopping a visibly nervous driver and informing her that: "it
is against the law to drive on a hot day without an ice cream cone".
They then proceed to hand out cones of ice cream to the driver and the
passenger, both of whom immediately laugh with relief.
Chief Lands said on Facebook that they gave out a total of 16 cones that
day, in a heartwarming display of community outreach.
