  • Denzel Washington came to the aid of a distressed man after spotting him with police

At one point, officers appear to handcuff the man as Washington stands with him - and afterward the actor even tries to put what looks like a bottle of orange juice in his pocket. "This man was arrested safely".

A week ago, the U.S. celebrity portal "TMZ" published a clip of Washington and the homeless, which shows, among other things, how the apparently confused man, the police and Washington interact non-violently.

"Denzel drove by, saw the individual on the road and was anxious about his safety", the police sergeant says in the footage.

"We intervened, spoke with the individual, and determined that he did not want to harm himself or others, and he was on his way, and Denzel left", the officer continues in the explanatory video.

He further said "Denzel provided him a mask to protect himself from the environment and that was good". "I can't help but wonder though what would've happened had Denzel not been there to help, or if he wasn't famous".

While the representative of Washington has still not spoken on this event, the actor's good act has trended his name on Twitter.

Protests against police violence broke out around the country this week, following the death of 46-year-old George Floyd, who died May 25 in police custody after a white police officer knelt on his neck for more than seven minutes on a Minneapolis street.

As of Friday morning, the video had 3.7 million views.

This is not the first time the actor has been praised for quietly helping someone.

Denzel Washington starring the upcoming movie "The little things" is expected to outline 2021. "What he did for that homeless man just reinforced that".
