Weekdays 5:30AM-10AM

A driver let off on a speeding ticket in Florida donates the money she would have spent on the fine to a fallen officer’s fund.

Kevin Baker, a Motor Unit Deputy for the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s office stopped a car going 15 mph over the speed limit in February.

If charged, the driver would have been fined $253. Baker decided to let her go with just a warning since she had a pretty clean driving record.

The driver was so touched by the Deputy that she decided to take part in her own act of kindness.

A few months later, Baker received a letter from the driver containing a check for $253. It was for the memorial fund of Michael Magli, a fallen Pinellas County Deputy.

“Just wanted to say thank you for the warning on Tarpon Ave,” the card states. “I am mindful. Coffee or donuts seemed inadequate, therefore, please accept this check for Officer Magli fund, from neighboring Pinellas County who died tragically serving.”

Michael Magli passed away on Feb 17, 2021 “as a result of a vehicle crash” according to the department. The Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office created the memorial fund for his family.

“To this citizen: thank you for this incredible gesture … not only have you put a big smile on the faces of #teamHCSO, but our brothers and sisters at Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office as well,” the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office stated on Facebook.

The department ended the post by saying, “a hero remembered never dies.”
