A food delivery driver bit off more than he could chew when he was pulled over for a traffic violation en route to make a delivery and was arrested.
The incident occurred around noon on May 26 in the Fort Street and Van Horn Road area of Trenton.
According to police lieutenant Mike Hawkins, it was discovered that the driver had an outstanding warrant with another Downriver agency, so he was arrested.
This usually marks the end of the police report when it comes to traffic stops, but on this occasion there was more to the story.
Hawkins said Staff Sgt. Aaron Biniarz discovered that the man was about to deliver an order placed from Qdoba.
Biniarz picked up the bag, found the address where it was to be delivered and undertook to conclude the transaction.
“He had to travel a few miles to complete the delivery,” Hawkins said. “He came and knocked on the door, but no one answered. I think they didn’t expect a policeman to come to the door and they got scared. He left the order at the door.
For the most part, people who saw the incident mentioned on their social media page appreciated seeing something a little different with a bit of humor infused into the report.
Biniarz had a bit of fun criticizing fellow officers and the community for going the extra mile on the call.
He even took a photo at the front door during the delivery.
“I don’t think he knew I was going to post it,” Hawkins said.
Nonetheless, followers of the department’s social media accounts seemed to appreciate the special service.
The majority of comments praised him for a job well done, calling out Biniarz’s consideration for the party that awaits their food – totally awesome.
