Two police officers helped a man pull off an epic proposal to his girlfriend, complete with a fake arrest.
“I don’t get in trouble so when the officer asked me to get out of the car, my stomach dropped,” said Brooklyn Schrupp, 20, told ABC News. “That was perfect for us. I know how much he loves his job and my whole family is in law enforcement so it was really sweet.”
Her boyfriend, Greg Morris, is a correctional officer in Tennessee. He popped the question on Feb. 24 after formulating a last-minute plan. He solicited the help of Officer Kevin Vester of the Medina Police Department and Officer Steven Morgan of the Gibson County Sheriff’s Office.
As Greg and Brooklyn were driving, they got pulled over by Officers Vester and Morgan. The officers told Brooklyn that she owned money for a traffic violation and her license was suspended, so they had to arrest her.
They ended up “releasing” her, and a moment later, Greg was down on one knee.
“That was perfect for us. I know how much he loves his job and my whole family is in law enforcement so it was really sweet. I wasn’t focused on anything else going on around me. I was just focused on him going down on one knee,” Brooklyn told ABC News.
