Despite the many great services they provide us, being a police officer can often be a pretty thankless job. You're often risking life and limb to try to make your community a safer place, which puts you in some of the most potentially dangerous situations known to humanity.
Not only that, but thanks to all the stories that often come to light of police officers abusing their power and generally causing problems for the people they're supposed to protect, the ones who legitimately do their jobs properly and just want to look out for people get painted with the same broad strokes.
Sometimes people do get together to do something to honor the boys in blue, especially if they've recently been helped out in a big way. What's exceptionally rare though is to see someone charged with a criminal offense offering up some kind of compensation to the officers that arrested them, but a woman in Louisiana is doing just that...
KATC reports that Celina Dally and her friend went to a wine tasting at McNeese State University. As is often the case at events like this, Dally swallowed a bit too much wine at the tasting (you're supposed to spit it back out at these things), and soon she was very intoxicated.
She ended up passing out completely in her friend's car, leading her friend to call 911 out of concern. When she woke up, Celina got something of a shocking surprise; she was in a jail cell, and had been arrested for public intoxication... and assaulting an officer.
Apparently in her drunken state, she had attempted to bite Officer Guillory, the police officer that arrived on the scene along with the paramedics. After sobering up and having her charges laid out, Dally felt guilty about the entire situation, taking to Facebook with the following post:
"Most of you DONT know lol but I was arrested on October 7th for public intoxication and also for assaulting an officer (not proud of it but it happened)" a post on her Facebook page says. "Anyway, as most of you DO know I'm way too nice. My conscience was eating at me so I decided to find Officer Guillory (who's super sweet btw) and apologize w a cookie cake! lol just thought I'd share w y'all."
There thankfully seems to be a good sense of humor at play here, as Dally did in fact give Guillory a cookie cake decorated with the words "Sorry I tried to bite you."
What do you think? Would you do the same in her shoes?
