Two Michigan officers pulled over a couple in Royal Oak last month and immediately ordered the driver and passenger to step out of the vehicle — but this was no ordinary traffic stop.
Dashcam footage released by the police department revealed that the driver was in on the stop. In fact, he had asked the officers to pull him over.
Why? So he could propose to his girlfriend of two years.
The Royal Oak Police Department explained the significance of the date and method in which the man proposed.
On April 17, 2013, a young man was pulled over by a Royal Oak Police officer while on his first date with a young woman.
Two years later to the day, he asked the ROPD for help with his marriage proposal to that very same young woman.
Royal Oak police were happy to accommodate him.
The surprise proposal caught the woman off guard.
"Oh my God!" she shouted when she realized what was going on.
After the man made things official and got down on one knee, his girlfriend said yes to the proposal.
