This Texas police officer is accustomed to making traffic stops, but he’s never been through one like this one.
Galveston Police Officer Gregory Parris arranged for other officers to pull over his girlfriend, Sara Wolff, so that he could propose to her in an elaborate ruse caught on dashboard camera.
KHOU-TV reports that Sara Wolff said “yes” to and that the couple will marry in July.
The patrol car video shows a car with sirens blaring stopping Wolff’s vehicle. That officer tells Wolff she has a broken taillight and that she also faces outstanding warrants.
The unwitting Wolff starts to cry.
Parris, who was watching the whole episode from another patrol car, then drives up and walks toward his girlfriend. Her tears turn to laughter as he gets down on one knee, produces a ring and asks her to marry him.
She says the officers involved “deserve academy awards.”
