Man gets pulled over on his way to a job interview, but the officer gave him a ride instead of a ticket

Officer Roger Gemoules is being praised for helping a man he pulled over get to a job interview

(CNN)An Illinois man has two reasons to feel lucky after getting pulled over on the way to a job interview -- he didn't get a ticket, and he got the job.

Ka'Shawn Baldwin was pulled over on Wednesday in Cahokia, Illinois, for allegedly having expired plates. He was also driving with a suspended driver's license. The 22-year-old told CNN he had borrowed the car.
Baldwin told the officer that he was on his way to a job interview and didn't have any other way to get there.
    "I thought it was over," Baldwin told CNN. "The main thing that was running through my mind [was]I'm fixin' to miss the job interview and get the car towed that wasn't even mine."
    Instead of giving a ticket, Roger Gemoules, a resource officer for Cahokia High School, gave Baldwin a ride to the interview. Gemoules was on patrol that day because the school was closed for spring break.
    "He was very respectful when I pulled him over and you could just tell -- I could feel that he really was wanting to get to this job interview," Gemoules said.
    He followed Baldwin, while he dropped off the car at a safe place and then drove him to the interview.
