Police Officer Finishes DoorDash Order After Arresting Delivery Driver

One South Dakota police officer went above and beyond after arresting a DoorDash driver who was on the way to a delivery.

The officer, identified by Sioux Falls Police as Sam Buhr, was captured on a doorbell camera dropping off an Arby's order to an unsuspecting DoorDash customer on Tuesday. In a video posted to the Tea Storm Chasers Facebook page, Buhr can be seen ringing the customer's doorbell with the Arby's order in hand.

"I know I'm not who you're expecting, but your driver got arrested," he said in the footage, before explaining, "I figured I'd complete the DoorDash for you."

The customer laughed before telling Buhr, "Thank you so much."

A Sioux Falls Police Department spokesperson confirmed to PEOPLE that Buhr had arrested the DoorDash driver on a warrant Tuesday afternoon after stopping them for a traffic violation.

"The driver was in the process of delivering food for Door Dash. Officer Buhr completed the delivery, bringing the food to the customer," the spokesperson told PEOPLE. "While delivering food is not a normal part of police work, helping people is."

"We're actively looking into this to take all appropriate actions, and have been in touch with local law enforcement to offer our help with their investigation," they added. "We're grateful to the law enforcement officer for stepping in and ensuring this customer received their order."
