A 32-year-old man decided to propose to his girlfriend while he was getting arrested. Justin Harrel was at a public holiday event with his girlfriend when police spotted him, recognizing his face -- he had two outstanding warrants for his arrest. As police placed handcuffs on Harrel, he decided to pop the question to his girlfriend, which he was planning on doing that night.
Harrel asked the arresting officer if he could have a couple of minutes with his girlfriend because he wanted to ask for her hand in marriage. The officer not only agreed, but reached into Harrel's pocket to get the engagement ring out!
It is unclear what Harrel was arrested for or what he will be charged with, but his girlfriend said "yes" and the two are officially engaged -- and they certainly will never forget this special day. Hopefully they don't have to have a jailhouse wedding...
