California deputy stages fake DUI traffic stop to propose to girlfriend

PALMDALE, CA (WCMH) — Deputy Kevin Bowes arranged to propose to his girlfriend with his fellow deputies by his side.

She was pulled over for what appeared to be a sobriety test. Deputies asked her to look to the sky, tap her nose, and eventually turn around. When she did that, her deputy boyfriend was already down on one knee.

She then ran over to give him a hug.

“Is that a yes,” he’s heard asking her, to which she then responds with a nod.

The Palmdale Sheriff’s Station shared the good news to Facebook.

Congratulations to future Mrs. Deputy Bowes
