Talk about getting locked down.

Marriage proposals are special moments that routinely go down with careful planning. I remember my marriage proposal — an evening at a hilltop restaurant overlooking California’s San Fernando Valley. It was downright magical, and she hasn’t gotten sick of me (yet).

For this couple, the moment went down in a way that will without a doubt be more memorable than anything else. The dude was on a mission to propose, and not even the cops were going to get in his way.

Brandon Thompson of Oklahoma had six felony warrants. Police showed up on his birthday to take him away to jail. Sure enough, they put him in cuffs and prepared to load him into their squad car.

While Thompson was in cuffs, however, officers allowed him to do something out of the ordinary for the situation. He asked his girlfriend Leandria Keith to marry him. The entire moment was caught on an officer’s body cam.

The bride-to-be told the local news that she was shocked by what happened, but knew what her answer would be.

“Oh my gosh is he serious?” she told News On 6. “But I knew I was gonna say yes. Like, I love him a lot. We go through our ups and downs. I guess it’s like an unconditional love, you know?”

I mean, how can she say “no” after that, right?

Thompson was eventually taken away and booked, but that doesn’t change what’s next. The couple plans on tying the knot after he gets through all his legal troubles.

This will be a great story to share at their wedding, and it’s 1,000 times better than the one by the couple who crashed in a hot air balloon.
