Even Handcuffs Couldn't Keep This Man From Proposing To His Girlfriend

Even Handcuffs Couldn't Keep This Man From Proposing To His Girlfriend

The officers couldn't believe what was happening but made a decision to help Thompson during his big moment.

Like seriously. What would you do if you were being arrested on six felony warrants on your 35th birthday?

Oklahoma man Brandon Thompson proposed to his girlfriend on Tuesday.

Body cam footage caught the moment on camera, as Thompson made his request to the officers who'd just put him in handcuffs.

Court documents show Thompson's charges included possession of a firearm after a felony conviction, failure to appear in court, and possession of a controlled risky substance.

Anderson also hopes the proposal will send a larger message to the public - one that showcases the humanity of police officers.

While in cuffs, Thompson asked his mother to retrieve his ring for him while the officers proceeded to move his cuffs to the front so he could place the ring on his fiancé's finger.

'I didn't want to part ways with her not showing exactly how I feel for her, ' he was reported as saying by CBS. Nevertheless, she said yes and later bailed Thompson out after his arrest.

Because he was handcuffed with his hands behind his back, Thompson was unable to give Keith the ring.

For Leandria Keith, it was a dream come true. Thompson's new fiancée celebrated by bailing him out of jail. "I guess it's like an unconditional love".

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

Shocked and taken aback, officers agreed to let him propose and he got down on one knee.
