City cops were attending what they believed was a domestic call at a Cornwall home involving an elderly couple who were in the midst of an argument.
Upon visiting the home police discovered that an elderly woman was suffering from dementia. They further determined that the husband had recently pawned his wedding ring in an effort to purchase groceries.
The couple had been married 54 years and the husband admitted he was finding it difficult to not only care for his wife, but to put food on the table.So the cops pitched in with some grocery money and the coughed up the dough to go buy back the wedding ring.
EMMETT TOWNSHIP, Michigan (WXMI) —
“When I spoke to [DeLorenzo] she was very forthcoming and knew that the child should be in a booster seat,” Officer Hall told FOX 17 News. “She admitted that she was wrong and that she had recently fallen on hard times.”
MSNBC reports that the woman's car had been repossessed that day, with the car seat inside, and she could not afford a replacement.
Instead of ticketing DeLorenzo, Officer Hall told the mom to meet him at a nearby Walmart so he could buy a booster seat for her daughter.
