ROBINSON CREEK, Ky. (EKB News) –  Typically, when you see blue lights on a police cruiser, you don’t expect to see hugs and happy tears.

But, that’s exactly what residents in the Robinson Creek community saw Sunday night as a United States marine was reunited with his family.

EKB News captured the reunion between US Marine Kevin Tackett as he surprised his family. Tackett hid in the back of a KSP cruiser. The trooper initiated a traffic stop and Tackett was there waiting to jump out and surprise them.
