HAMILTON, Ohio (AP) -- A southwest Ohio sheriff's office is praising one of its deputies who quietly went out of his way to help a homeless family he spotted in a jail waiting room.

The Butler County Sheriff's Office says 25-year veteran deputy Brian Bussell first saw the woman and her two young children sitting in the waiting room Sunday morning. He asked if something was wrong, and she told him she had been evicted from her home.

He tried unsuccessfully to get her into a shelter and instead paid for a hotel room for her for 10 days. He also took the family to a Wal-Mart and bought clothes.

Bussell didn't tell anyone at work. Others found out when the woman took a photo with him and posted it on Facebook.
