An Alabama State Trooper got quite the shock when he pulled over a speeder on US 72 Sunday morning, WHNT reports. Trooper Michael Kesler found Danny Lowe behind the wheel and Lowe's wife, Shawna, on the verge of giving birth—so Kesler lent her a hand. "Without hesitation, Trooper Kesler quickly acted and assisted in the delivery of the baby," says a state official. Kesler apparently also called an ambulance and helped keep the baby and mother warm while they waited. Then he joined Danny at the hospital and bought them a newborn starter kit, cupcakes, and flowers. "He was awesome," Danny tells WTSP. "He settled me down." Kesler also let the new dad off with a mere speed warning. (More Alabama stories.)
