Man Proposes During His Arrest, Girlfriend Says Yes

Officer Bob Lynch had seen Thompson earlier in the day and recognized him from the several felony warrants out for his arrest, so he followed him to the home.

A couple in Oklahoma didn't let a pair of handcuffs stop them from getting engaged.

In police body camera footage of the encounter, Thompson can be heard telling his girlfriend, Leandria Keith, "I love you".

Before officers arrived, Thompson was celebrating his birthday and the Fourth of July with family.

According to NBC New York, Thompson's arrest is related to charges including possession of a firearm after a felony conviction, possession of a controlled risky substance and failure to appear in court.

Anderson said he hopes Thompson learns a valuable lesson through the arrest and proposal.

"I asked the officer if I could propose", Thompson later told CNN.

And his girlfriend said yes. That is when he got down on one knee.

"When the other officer told me he was gonna propose, I think my initial response was, 'Are you kidding me?'" Lincoln Anderson, a Muskogee Police Department spokesman, told News on 6. Then, the officers switched Thompson's handcuffs from behind his back to his front so that he could place an engagement ring on Keith's finger. Keith pulled the couple's savings together to bail Thompson out of jail. "I was shocked", Keith told CNN.

They say they will set a wedding date once Thompson's legal troubles are resolved. He was released the day after his arrest.

The officers present on the scene were surprised with Mr Thompson's request but allowed him to go ahead with the proposal.
