Posted: Updated:

SUMTER, S.C. - A police officer in South Carolina makes good on his promise to buy a young man a special Christmas gift, if he improved his grades.

Officer Glenn Baun met Ashante in the fall. The officer noticed that Ashante was riding a worn skateboard. After speaking with Ashante's mom, Officer Baun told Ashante that he would buy him a new skateboard for Christmas if he pulled up his grades and kept up good behavior.

As promised, Baun showed up Christmas morning with the skateboard and helped Ashante put it together.

Ashante said he had broken his old skateboard a few weeks ago and was very happy, and thankful, for the new ride.
