A traffic stop in New Jersey turned into an unlikely reunion when Trooper Michael Patterson (right) pulled over Matthew Bailly (left) and discovered the retired cop had helped delivered him 27 years ago.

On Friday, he was on patrol in Kingwood when he stopped a auto for a tinted window violation.

During their conversation, Bailly told Patterson that he was a retired Piscataway police officer.

Bailly was on duty in Piscataway 27 years ago when he was called to the home of Karen Patterson, who had gone into labor. "He was even able to describe the color, style of house, and the baby's name, Michael", New Jersey State Police wrote on Facebook.

Patterson extended his hand and replied: "My name is Michael Patterson, sir". Officer Bailly got instructions on how to deliver the baby thanks to a doctor on the phone. Patterson's mother, Karen, went into labor while out shopping and barely made it home.

A doctor talked Baily, the officer who got the call, through the delivery.

Patterson and his mother recently visited Bailly and his wife to complete a reunion nearly three decades in the making.

A few weeks ago, the NFL announced it would force players to stand during the national anthem this upcoming season. It's a cowardly act to cancel the celebration because the majority of the people don't want to see you.

Mr Bailly and Mr Patterson took more photos together to mark the occasion and shared the photos with the state police.

Patterson got out of his patrol vehicle to speak with Bailly.

It was just a routine traffic stop.

New Jersey State Police Department confirmed to the BBC that Mr Bailly had been stopped because of his vehicle's tinted windows.

Trooper Stops Retired Police Officer Who Delivered Him 27 Years AgoWe're not sure what the odds are of this. Bobby Patterson, the trooper's father, "rushed outside, picked up his wife, and carried her inside the house".

After that revelation about their connection, Patterson delivered Bailly a first-class handshake instead of a summons.

Trooper Patterson, Bailly, and both of their families were "ecstatic" about the reunion, officials wrote. But what are the chances that you'll pull over the guy who helped give you life?
