Deputy's Kind Act For Homeless Family


An Ohio deputy is being praised for going above and beyond the line of duty when he paid for clothes and a hotel stay for a homeless family.

According to a Facebook post by the Butler County Sheriff's Office, a homeless mother and her two sons came into the office looking for help. The woman had just been evicted from her home and had no place to stay for the moment.

When Deputy Brian Bussell heard about the woman's tragic story, he didn't think twice about helping.

The deputy said he looked at local shelters but that, "most of the shelters were overcrowded or there was a time requirement to be there and we were past that."

So the 25-year veteran quickly stepped up and made arrangements for the family to stay at a nearby hotel for 10 days. He paid for everything out of his own pocket.

He then took the family to a local Wal-Mart and told them to pick out some clothes, which the deputy also foot the bill for, no questions asked.

Bussell didn't brag to anyone about his incredible act of kindness. No one knew what he had done until the mother snapped a pic and posted about the deputy on Facebook.

The sheriff couldn't help but applaud Bussell's act, especially with the recent political climate:
