"Thank you for delivering me, sir!"

A New Jersey State Trooper recently stopped Matthew Bailly in Kingwood Township for a minor vehicle violation. As they talked, Bailly mentioned that he was a retired Piscataway cop. Patterson told Bailly that Piscataway was his hometown. Bailly asked what street he grew up on. When Patterson answered, Bailly said he was very familiar with it.

He recalled that when he was a rookie copy 27 years ago, he delivered a baby at a home on that street. Patterson delivered the baby while on the phone with a doctor, who talked him through it. Bailly remembered the baby's name was Michael. "I'm Michael Patterson," said the trooper. Thank you for delivering me, sir!"  Bailly never got a ticket. Just a handshake and a hug.
