“Welcome home, Clint!” the sheriff’s office wrote.
A video posted by the office on Monday shows Thomas surprising his son after deputies pulled over the vehicle the boy was riding in.
“What’s up, bud?” Thomas can be heard saying in the video.
The footage shows the child climbing out of the car’s window and into his dad’s arms.
The two then are held in a long embrace, as cheers of “welcome home” can be heard in the background.
