A New Jersey state trooper recently pulled over a driver for a minor violation and was shocked to learn that they had actually met 27 years ago under much different circumstances.
During the traffic stop, the two men struck up a conversation and the driver, Matthew Bailly, mentioned that he was a retired cop who used to work in Patterson's hometown. He then happened to recall the time that he delivered a woman's baby outside her house about 27 years ago.
It just so happens that Patterson was born 27 years ago in front of his mother's house and was delivered by a cop. Patterson was shocked and said to the driver, "My name is Michael Patterson, sir. Thank you for delivering me."
They were both stunned by the unexpected reunion and made plans to get together to meet up in a more casual setting. Patterson and his mother visited Bailly and his wife at their home and posed for pictures, which the New Jersey State Police shared on Facebook. WOW!
