New Jersey State Trooper stops retired officer who delivered him

Trooper pulls over cop who delivered him 27 years ago. So did he ticket him?

Trooper Michael Patterson stopped Matthew Bailly on June 1 for a minor vehicle violation last week, according to the New Jersey State Police's Facebook page.

Patterson then extended his hand, said "I'm Michael Patterson, thanks for delivering me". "Thank you for delivering me", according to the New Jersey State Police.

In the course of their conversation, Bailly mentioned to the young trooper that he was a retired Piscataway cop. "We're not sure what the odds are of this happening - maybe they're close to the odds of a hole-in-one, winning the lottery, or being struck by lightning - but it happened", the caption reads.

Needless to say, Patterson did not wind up giving Bailly a ticket.

TOOTHLESS Makes a Love Connection in HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON
How to Train Your Dragon 3 hits theaters on March 1st, 2019, so this trailer is going to have to keep fans going for a bit longer. Regardless, this new trailer is an awesome first look at the last movie in the beloved franchise.

The two men talked some more and figured out that it was Bailly who brought the future-trooper into the world 27 years ago. Patterson, a Piscataway native, told the retired cop he was from the same town.

Back then, Bailly was a rookie cop who was called to the Patterson home to help when Patterson's mother suddenly went into labor. He was even able to describe the color, style of house, and the baby's name, Michael. He also remembered the description of the home where the baby was born, and also that the baby's name was Michael.

Whatever the odds were, it happened. Patterson is from Poe Place, for Bailly, that name rang a bell. Their history begins on October 5, 1991, when Michael's mom couldn't get to the hospital in time. She barely made it home. Patterson's father, Bobby, had to help carry his mother inside and called a doctor.

Both the Patterson family and the Bailly family were "ecstatic" about the fateful reunion, and Mr Patterson and his mother visited Mr Bailly at his home, police said. After all, as a police officer, you don't always get a chance to have a moment like this with people you once helped in your career!
