Man in wheel chair gets extra special escort from Stockton police


"All cops aren't bad."

That's how Alex Flores starts off the video he posted on News10's Facebook page Tuesday afternoon.

The 27-second video shows a Stockton police vehicle closely following a man in a wheelchair as he travels down the South Center Street overpass at Highway 4.

"Look at this one, he's helping out a guy in a wheelchair so he won't get hit by traffic," Flores said in the video.

According to Stockton police Office Joe Silva, the video only captures the end of the incident.

As police officers were driving in the area, they saw the man struggling to get up the overpass. So, one of the officers got out of the patrol vehicle and pushed him up the overpass. When the man said he could take it from there, the officer got back into the SUV.
