Police forces in the US can often generate negative headlines, but the officer involved in this case has gone viral for all the right reasons.
Instead of telling off these kids when a noise complaint was made about their street basketball game, Gainesville police officer Bobby White defended the young people.
"Can you believe someone is calling to complain about kids playing basketball in the street?” he said in a dashcam video, after stopping to shoot a few baskets with them.
"I obviously don't have a problem with it."
The video came to the attention of former Orlando Magic and Los Angeles Lakers centre Shaquille O'Neal who made contact with the officer and offered to play a game with him and the young people involved
The teenagers were stunned when the 7ft 1ins legend appeared, ready and willing to take them on in a game.
Well done all round.
