West Monroe PD surprises drivers with gift cards during traffic stops

By  | 

WEST MONROE, La. (KNOE) - Several drivers got quite a surprise Wednesday morning when they were pulled over by West Monroe PD.

Uncle Si Robertson surprises West Monroe driver with a gift card.

That's because Uncle Si Robertson was riding shotgun.

The Duck Dynasty star, West Monroe police, and United Automation teamed up to hand out gift cards.

Drivers were pulled over for minor violations. They were given a warning about the violation and instead of a ticket, they got a $100 gift card.

Uncle Si said he did this to not only help families with back to school expenses but to also to build up the relationship between the community and police.

West Monroe Officer Baker also crossed the river into Monroe, so Uncle Si could give a hundred dollars to Alyssa Reuther. She's the J.S. Clark Elementary school teacher we featured on the news Tuesday. She is raising money to buy all of her students headphones for a digital math program.

As of Wednesday afternoon, Reuther's fundraising goal has been met.
