INDIANAPOLIS – A picture of an IMPD officer and local homeless man is getting tens of thousands of likes and tweets across the country. It all stems from a random act of kindness captured and tweeted by Pacers center Roy Hibbert.
Hibbert was on the near north side when he saw an officer get out of his car, grab a pair of boots from the trunk and give them to the man.
Though drivers don’t always stop or give the homeless man money at the 29th Street exit off I-65, most of them know Fred. For years, he has been panhandling there and picking up trash on the side of the highway.
“I think I got about $9 today, but it’s enough to eat,” Fred said.
On Monday morning, an IMPD police car stopped at Fred’s corner.
“He pulled up and I thought he was going to give me a ticket. And he said, ‘What size shoes you wear?” Fred said.
Instead of a ticket, the officer pulled out a new pair of boots.
“He said, ‘I got some size 10 boots that I want to give to someone.’ I said, ‘Well, I know someone that could use them.’ So he gave them to me,” Fred said.
Fred’s feet are a size 15, so the boots didn’t fit. He wanted to pay it forward, so he gave the boots to another homeless man in Indianapolis.
“This is built on luck. The luck of someone coming through here and giving me something. So if I break the luck by selling the shoes that someone gives me, my luck will run out here,” Fred said.
Hibbert’s tweet of that moment went viral on social media, but the officer still has not come forward or taken credit.
“I don’t want them to find out who the officer is, because I don’t want to get him in trouble,” Fred said.
Still, he is thankful and happy to pass along one policeman’s act of kindness.
“It’s just luck. So I give someone else the shoes, the luck continues, I believe,” Fred said.
Hibbert also tweeted that he wished he knew the officers name or badge number and would like to do something for him.
