A teenage girl driving down a Wisconsin street was left astonished after a police officer pulled her over and gave her two tickets — just not the kind of tickets she was expecting.
Audra Daniloff, 17, who suffers from a life-threatening condition, received an early Christmas surprise on November 21 when she was pulled over for supposedly running through a stop sign.
“I got some good news and some bad news for you, okay?” Saukville Police Chief Jeffrey Goetz told Daniloff after pulling her over.
The 17-year-old braced for the officer's next words, having no idea the entire stop was orchestrated by her father.
“The bad news, first I am giving you two tickets," Goetz said. "But they are not the type of tickets you think. One is a plane ticket to New York. The other is a concert ticket for your favorite band.”
Daniloff, who was diagnosed with hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis, was stunned to learn she'd be seeing Timeflies in concert.
"That's not a joke," Goetz told her.
"Oh my God!" Daniloff responded. "You're my favorite cop in the entire world!"

Marc Daniloff, Audrey's father, said he was pleased with the way everything worked out.
“I completely blind sided her thanks to the wonderful help of the Saukville Police Department,” he told WITI-TV.
