Iowa officer thanked for giving teen a seat belt ticket

Posted: Updated:

An Iowa police officer pulled a young man over for not wearing his seat belt. 

Instead of complaining, the man thanked the officer for keeping him safe. 

Sebastian Baugh snapped a selfie with Urbandale police department officer Eric Wilcutt and posted it on Facebook. 

Sebastian wrote, "I could have gotten in an accident and died today because I wasn't wearing my seat belt. Officer Wilcutt is a good officer. Great, actually he was officer of the year in 2015. "

He then went on to say, "So hear what I'm saying Facebook Friends. They are in place to protect and help us. Not all demonstrated that they are. I feel safer living in West Des Moines knowing that officers like Wilcutt are out there."
