A police officer has gone viral on TikTok for his commitment to serve, protect, and “deliver” after arresting a DoorDash driver on their way with an order.

Food delivery apps, such as Uber Eats and DoorDash, have become increasingly popular, especially amid global health concerns. With virtually any restaurant now capable of offering delivery, there’s quite a lot of orders on the road.

But what happens if a delivery driver gets pulled over or even arrested with an order? That’s exactly what happened when a South Dakota woman ordered some Arby’s, but her driver got cuffed along the way.

How many cops would deliver food after arresting a delivery driver?

Speaking to the Argus Leader, Elsinger originally thought her food would be delayed or even canceled after seeing police lights and assumed her driver had been pulled over. So, she was pleasantly surprised when the cop took it upon himself to personally bring her Arby’s.

Police spokesman Sam Clemens praised the delivering officer, Sam Buhr. According to Clemens, the DoorDash driver was arrested for a crime during the delivery and Buhr took it upon himself to complete the trip.

However, don’t expect to see police delivering orders very often, as Clemens clarified that this wasn’t a “normal” occurrence.

“This isn’t normal by any stretch, but the little things like this going above and beyond helping people out. That’s the things that we do,” Clemens explained.
