A DoorDash customer had a police officer knocking on their door, after their delivery driver was arrested.

According to ABC 12, a DoorDash delivery driver was arrested by officers attached to Jonesboro Police Department in the US state of Arkansas on June 29.

At the time, the driver was on his way to deliver food to a woman named "Sherry" and Officer Tyler Williams made sure the food was removed from the vehicle before it was towed.

Officer Williams made sure he got the right address and made his way to drop off the food, which was captured on his body cam.

Jonesboro Police Department shared the video of the delivery on Facebook.

"Is there a Sherry here?" Officer Williams is heard asking a man who answers the door.

The police officer then asks to speak to Sherry, who pokes her head out from another room.

"You don't have to get up," Officer Williams says before confirming she is Sherry.

"Your DoorDash guy got arrested so I brought your food to you."

He holds up the bag of food and the man who answered the door takes it from him, while Sherry thanks the police officer while laughing.

"Y'all, I can't make this up..." the police department wrote on Facebook, along with the hashtags "#ProtectandServe" and "#andDoorDash".

The video went relatively viral after it was shared to Facebook, racking up over 97,000 views.

According to FOX 5, the delivery driver is a 22-year-old man who was arrested for not having valid car insurance and driving on a suspended licence.

The driver also had a warrant out for his arrest after failing to appear in court for a previous charge.

“The safety of our community is extremely important and we take reports of this nature very seriously," a DoorDash spokesperson said in a statement to ABC 12. 

"We have deactivated the Dasher involved and are in touch with law enforcement to support their investigation in any way we can.”
