Cop plays hopscotch with girl during 'suspicious vehicle' call

When Huntington Beach police went to check out a suspicious car, they ended up getting more than they bargained for. 
Officers discovered an 11-year-old girl and her mother living in the car.  While officer Scott Marsh made arrangements for the family to obtain shelter, his partner Zach Pricer drew out a hopscotch game board on the sidewalk and proceeded to hit his best hops. 
The heartwarming video, which was posted on the Huntington Beach police Facebook page, picked up roughly half-a-million views since being uploaded Wednesday.

This morning an officer checked on a suspicious occupied vehicle in the area of Graham and Edinger. During his investigation he learned the people in the vehicle were a mother and her 11 year old daughter and they had been living out of their car. The officer contacted our Homeless Task Force to help arrange housing. As the officer worked on housing arrangements with the mother, another officer on scene, Officer Pricer, began displaying his expertise in hopscotch to the daughter. #Copslovehopscotch
