EDMOND, OK - Do you remember the first time you got pulled over by a police officer while driving?

Llacey Lett reports. For one teen driver in Oklahoma, that first ticket turned out to be a dream come true.

(Lacey Lett/Reporting): "The last thing you want to see driving is flashing lights in your rear view mirror, but it turned out to be a pleasant surprise for a teen."

(NATS/Katie Hirn/Teen Driver): "It's not my fault. It's your car. It's your responsibility. It's not my fault."

This was 15-year-old Katie Hirn's reaction when getting pulled over by the Edmond Police Department.

(NATS/Katie Hirn/Teen Driver): "He like turned on his lights and I looked at my mom and was like 'you've got to be joking me."

(NATS/Officer Josh Smith/Edmond, OK Police Dept.): "I just need you to look over this citation, make sure everything is correct on it."

Little did Katie know her mom was setting her up for a big surprise, tickets to see her favorite singer Ariana Grande playing in Oklahoma City this April.

(NATS/Katie Hirn/Teen Driver): Wait. What?

(NATS/Officer Josh Smith/Edmond, OK Police Dept.): "Feel free to thank your mom for this."

(NATS/Katie Hirn/Teen Driver): Are you serious?! "

(Katie Hirn/Teen Driver):"I freaked out. I honestly started crying."

It took three months for Katie’s mom to set up the surprise with the Edmond Police Department, help through her neighbor, this man, Officer Josh Smith.

(Katie Hirn/Teen Driver): "I have been begging my mom to get me these tickets for the longest time."

But it didn't happen without some stress involved.

(Katie Hirn/Teen Driver): "I know I was going like 43. I was too afraid to go 45 which is the speed limit."

A fist bump from mom and officer for being right there for an Edmond teen on good behavior.
