A teenager in Arlington, Texas, was lucky enough to avoid arrest after a police officer caught him smoking marijuana outside a local movie theater.

But he didn't get off that easy...

Earlier this week, Officer Eric Bell, working off-duty, ordered the teen to do 200 pushups rather than arrest him on the spot, according to local ABC affiliate WFAA-TV.

The incident was captured in a video by Raiza Paredez and posted on Facebook.

She added the following caption to the video:

"Big UP's to the Arlington Police Officer that made the young black guy that decided to smoke weed on the movie theater parking lot to do push-ups then take him to jail or shoot him just Cuz. We need more cops like this. #Policeeverywhereneedtotakenotes #ArlingtonPoliceDept"

Police said Officer Ball found the teen's mother inside the theater and she gave him a big hug and told him he should have made her son do even more pushups.
