(NEWSER) – An ex-con in New York City ended up riding in the front seat of a police car for the first time after getting lost on his way to a job interview. James Roberts, 58, says he used a free roundtrip bus pass to go to LaGuardia Airport, only to discover that his interview was at a company miles away.
Roberts says the officer asked him what was wrong and when he discovered the dilemma, he "said, 'You're not going to walk there and make it there. What time do you have to be there?' and I said, '1 o'clock,' and it was like 12-something, and he said, 'Get in the car,'" Roberts tells ABC7.
