PLANO, Texas -- A north Texas man says a police officer changed his life after pulling him over.

Hayden Carlo was pulled over for an expired registration sticker in Plano.

Carlo told the officer he couldn t afford to pay the registration fee. The officer wrote him a citation, and put a $100 bill inside.

He helped me out when I needed it, and I appreciate that. I ll never forget the man. It definitely restored my faith in God, said Carlo, of Wylie.

The money helped Carlo update his registration sticker and the one on his wife s car.

The Plano officer did not want to be identified, but his coworkers plan to honor him anyway.
