COFFEE CO., GA (WALB) - A Georgia State Trooper is getting some attention online after he went above and beyond the call of duty in Douglas on Monday.

An unidentified trooper was sitting at a red light at the intersection of Highways 206 and 441 when he noticed an elderly man and woman had broken down at the intersection.

He backed up his patrol car to block the two lanes of traffic then helped push their car into the the Wendy's parking lot.
