A 52-year-old Maryland man recently approached by five police officers on the side of the road after blowing out his band and said that he was surprised by what happened next.

Bobby Burwell, a Prince George’s County native, was on his way home with his son in the car after attending a music-shoot late at night, when his tire blew out, according to Fox 5 DC. In the first instance, Burwell hesitated when he saw the police approaching his vehicle, but the responding officers quickly removed Burwell’s.

“They said,” hey, you [find] if you have a problem. We want to help you, and what we’ll do: we are going to change this band,” Burwell told the station.

Under the impression of the officers ‘ efforts, Burwell filmed in the situation, praising “Prince George’s finest.”

“I was terrified,” Burwell said of his initial thoughts when the agents pulled. “When I see the red cherry light and the blue, I’m good, I don’t know what’s going on here.”

Burwell added he was ” grateful to Prince George’s County Police Department, and the gentlemen who took the time to not only help me, but to help me to be safe at home.”

He said that he is the video of the encounter to illustrate to his family and how they can deal with people in a positive way.
