A routine traffic stop reunited a New Jersey state trooper with the now-retired police officer who had helped bring him into the world. Trooper Michael Patterson was on patrol Friday when he pulled over Matthew Bailly for a tinted window violation in Kingwood Township. The two men talked and Bailly mentioned he used to be a police officer as well, in Piscataway, where Patterson grew up. Bailly was on-duty in Piscataway 27 years ago when he was called to the home of a Karen Patterson, who had gone into labour. He helped her deliver her little boy. The trooper said, “My name is Michael Patterson, sir. Thank you for delivering me.” The New Jersey State Police said that Bailly wasn’t ticketed.
