New Jersey Trooper Stops Retired Cop Who Delivered Him 27 Years Ago
"We’re not sure what the odds are of this happening — maybe they’re close to the odds of a hole-in-one, winning the lottery, or being struck by lightning — but it happened," New Jersey State Police said.

A New Jersey trooper met the retired police officer who delivered him 27 years ago — when he pulled him over last week.
Trooper Michael Patterson stopped Michael Bailly for a minor motor vehicle violation on June 1 in the Kingwood Township area, and as the two men spoke, Bailly mentioned that he used to be an officer in Piscataway. Patterson told Bailly that he was from the same town, and Bailly asked where he grew up.
Patterson told him that he grew up on Poe Place.
Bailly recalled Poe Place well; back in October 1991, when he was a rookie cop, he helped deliver a baby there.
Bailly remembered the color and style of house, and that the baby’s name had been Michael.
Patterson extended his hand to Bailly.
"My name is Michael Patterson, sir. Thank you for delivering me," the trooper said.
Bailly never got that ticket for the minor violation, state police said.
