New Jersey State Trooper Buys Dinner for Couple in Need

A New Jersey State Trooper went above and beyond to help a couple in need and his good deed was caught all on camera.

Trooper Sean Wallace was dispatched to a food store in Hainesport Township Saturday night after a complaint was made about a man asking customers for money outside of the store. Upon arrival, he spoke with the manager who explained he had told the man to leave the property earlier in the day.

Body camera video shows Wallace speaking to the man who explains he needed food for him and his wife. A few moments later, Wallace took the man to a nearby store in Burlington County and bought him dinner.

Wallace has been on the job for less than a year but his fellow NJ State Troopers admit he “handled this situation like a 20-year veteran with a heart of gold.”
