Plano, TX -- Usually if you get pulled over by a cop, it doesn't end well, but a traffic stop in Texas ended unlike any you've ever heard about before.

Hayden Carlo has been struggling to support his wife and two small children, and getting pulled over for an expired registration ticket didn't help.

Carlo told the officer he couldn't afford the registration- that it was either renew it, or feed his family.

The officer, who doesn't want to be identified, wrote out a warning ticket, and wrapped it around a $100 bill. 

"He felt that this young man needed it more than him, and it was just the right thing to do," explained a Plano, TX officer. 

"I broke down in my car. What else do you do?" said Carlo of his reaction. 

Carlo was able to renew the registration- not only on his car, but also his wife's.
