Rosenberg, Tex. -

Dashcam video from a Texas police officer has gone viral, all because of a kid and a football.

The video shows Sgt. Ariel Soltura, Rosenberg, Tex., patrolling the streets, when he saw a boy playing by himself. Then you see the officer pull over, get out of his patrol car, and play catch with the boy.

Soltura said he had just finished a traffic stop, and he decided to stop for a bit and play "some toss."

He said he's done this kind of thing before -- just trying to engage kids in the community, whether they're playing with a football, riding bikes, or skateboarding.

Soltura said it helps officers appear more human and encourages co-operation with the public.
