BELOIT -- A photo of a Beloit police officer buying a homeless man a meal at a local fast-food restaurant has gone viral on social media.

Emily Hummel posted the photo Jan. 3 on the Beloit Police Department Facebook page.

"I’m not sure what this officer’s name is. He’s from the Beloit Police Department," Hummel wrote. "He kindly drove this homeless man and his bike all the way to McDonald’s to get whatever he wanted on the menu ... this was the sweetest thing I have seen in a really long time."

It turns out the officer is Aaron Hall, according to Sgt. Ryan Flanagan, who manages the police Facebook page. Hall didn’t know the photo was taken of him until much later and he was hesitant to share the photo, Flanagan said.

Hall has been seen online before, like the video where he was skateboarding with kids at Riverside Park.

"He is a quiet professional, and obviously a great guy who takes his own time (and money) to help our city to be better," Flanagan wrote in a post. "This is the very essence of mission that we have, and something that can’t be trained. Awesome work brother."
