Man proposes to girlfriend while being arrested

Proposal

Cops in Muskogee, Oklahoma, say they arrested 35-year-old Brandon Thompson July 4 on six felony warrants and were leading him to a waiting police vehicle when he made an unusual request.

Police body camera video captured the moment between the couple on the Fourth of July, a moment that caught even officers off guard. "But I knew I was gonna say yes", Keith said to News On 6. "I want her to be my wife for the rest of my life".

Thompson's family had been celebrating his birthday and Independence Day in their front yard when police showed up to the scene.

According to CNN, Thompson was arrested on six felony warrants for failure to appear in court and failure to pay.

The officers agreed to Thompson's request, watching (and filming) as he got down on one knee.

"When the other officer told me he was gonna propose I was think my initial response was are you kidding me", Officer Lincoln Anderson said. He wanted to propose to his girlfriend, while still in handcuffs.

The police officers hope that people will be able to see the human side of law enforcement after Thompsons' proposal scenario. "Will you be my wife, please?"

The arresting officers moved Thompson's handcuffs from the back to the front so he could place the engagement ring on her finger, and she said yes. The bodycam video shows Thompson asking his mother if he should "do it now" and told her to get the ring. I don't want them to make the same mistakes I've made'.

Thompson was already trying to turn his life around and had been coaching at a peewee football team lately.

Thompson's new fiancé bailed him out of jail the next day.

Keith also credits the police for allowing her boyfriend to propose, calling them "amazing". "I know that he loves me and I love him and we can get through anything together", Keith said. "Sometimes the smallest gesture of kindness is the biggest influence in someone's life".
