East Texas sheriff’s department hands out Christmas cheer instead of tickets

GREGG COUNTY, TX (KLTV) - Instead of handing out citations or tickets, officers from one East Texas sheriff's department went ahead and spread some Christmas joy.

In a recent Facebook post, officers from the Gregg County sheriff's office are seen conducting your average traffic stops, except there's a twist.

Instead of receiving citations, drivers are handed their secret Santa gift.

A much-unexpected gift, that brought some of the drivers to tears.
