Instead of traffic tickets, one Georgia police officer dished out something much sweeter to the people he pulled over — ice cream.
When Officer Ed Smith of the Warner Robins Police Department stopped people for driving infractions last week, he gave them all a Dairy Queen Blizzard and let them go with a warning.
“Most of them were in complete disbelief,” Smith told TODAY.com. “One girl’s face, it was worth a thousand words. She thought she was in a lot of trouble.”
She could have been — Smith said he only pulled over people who were actually doing something wrong, per federal law.
“We can’t violate their Fourth Amendment rights, so there had to be probable cause for the stop to be made,” Smith said. “Failure to use a turn signal, burnt out taillights. We had one improper lane change.”
The sweet surprises were part of the police department’s “Traffic Stops for Blizzards,” program, their way to support “Miracle Treat Day,” in which $1 from every Dairy Queen Blizzard sold benefits Children’s Miracle Networks Hospitals

Back before inside seating and the drive thru, an industry original; I remember when my Dad would stop and get my family a treat, he always asked us if we wanted “vanilla or vanilla?” We all smiled when he brought back 3 cones for my brothers and I. Memories are sweet!
