A Baytown, Texas, teen recently saw a police car parked in a fire lane near her apartment complex and wrote the officer a ticket.

"He was parked on the side of the building. It said it was a fire lane all the way around," 14 year-old Annie Jones told KPRC-TV.

Officer Tommy King found the ticket on his windshield and started laughing.

Jones' ticket asked King to pay $10 to the apartment manager. He was so impressed that Jones didn’t ask for the money to be paid to herself, that the officer paid the manager and gave Jones a $40 gift certificate to Toys 'R Us.

"I have a new friend. I think the lesson is not to be afraid of law enforcement, we're here to help," King told KPRC-TV.
