State Trooper tells woman to smile during traffic stop, takes photo

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - With more than 5,000 likes and 2,000 shares, a post on Facebook is making the rounds for being positive. A woman was stopped by Louisiana State Police for three traffic violations.

Her post states:

Ok so I was pulled over; I was in the wrong, and yall know I had an attitude, lol! I was asked to step to the back of the car to discuss why I was pulled over. After reluctantly walking to the back of my vehicle, mean muggin of course, the first thing the officer said to me was, SMILE! His words instantly melted everything negative in me that my past, the media, and our society had poured into my spirit. We talked, we laughed, and took advantage of a perfect photo opp! Now share that!

Her honesty in the post has hit home for many people. She says in the comments of her post that all tickets were waived and it turned out to be a good experience.
