Chicago Cop Didn’t Realize He Was Photographed, Now It’s Gone Viral For All The Right Reasons


Chicago Cop Sergeant B. Hagarty was eating lunch at a Chipotle when he noticed a guy digging through the trash outside the window. Hagarty got up and stopped the man from going through the trash.

Then he brought him inside….

Another Chipotle customer, Rachel Mitchell, watched the whole interaction. She said that the officer knocked on the window to ask the man if he was hungry. The man outside nodded, so Hagarty motioned for him to come inside the restaurant. Hagerty took the homeless man to the counter and told him to order whatever he wanted, and proceeded to pay for the man’s meal and shake his hand.

Hagarty didn’t know that anyone was watching or taking photos. Mitchell’s photo went viral, however, and the Chicago Police department confirmed that it was, indeed, Hagarty in the photo.
