TEXAS CITY, TX (KTRK) — A heartfelt moment between a Texas City officer and a man he arrested nearly a decade ago is going viral on social media.

Senior Patrolman Salvador “Sal” Chapa says he was at a barbecue cook off Saturday when a man approached and asked to pray with him.

Chapa says he arrested the man, whom he identified as Doc Amey, eight years ago on a gun charge. Amey ultimately was convicted and sentenced to prison.


During his time behind bars, Amey reportedly turned to God and the Bible for help changing the path of his life. When he was released from prison, the man went to college and continued to study the Bible.

Chapa says he’s seen Amey around town several times, but it was the recent violent attacks against officers that prompted Amey to reconnect with him.
