Sgt. Ostermueller of the Cherry Hill Police Department "ticketed" these two kids for riding their bikes safely.

Usually, getting a ticket from a police officer means a fine or a day in court.

Not so for two kids in Cherry Hill, who were "booked," so to speak, for riding their vehicles the right way.

An officer stopped the children a few weeks ago, according to the local department's Facebook page, for cycling on the right side of the road and wearing their helmets. 

Sgt. Ostermueller, the responding officer, handed Joey and Amelia their "tickets," which granted them free Slurpees at 7-Eleven. 

A judge is expected to hand the perpetrators their flavor choices in a hearing next month.
