Chy-Niece Thacker was on her way to a job interview when she got pulled over.

"So this happened just now. I'm on my way to go to my interview this morning when I get pulled. Both brake lights decided to go out this time. As he walked to the car and I was pulling out my stuff, he quickly said, 'Don't worry about pulling anything out. I just want you to know that your brake lights are out'," she wrote in a Facebook post.

"So I'm immediately upset, because I just got them replaced like last month. So I explained to him how Firestone wants to charge me $600 just to run a test on the wiring of the car. He looked at me like [fearful face emoji] and told me to pop the trunk. He checked the lights in the trunk and tapped them, but they didn't come on. So he told me to pop the hood to check the relay box then asked me to get out to check the other one. He could've easily given me a ticket, but Officer Jenkins stepped out of officer role and into mechanic role to make sure I was straight."

Having a background in mechanics, Officer Jenkins had Thacker safely back on the road and on her way to her job interview.
