Watch what happened when this arrested man asks permission to propose to girlfriend before drive to jail

Brandon Thompson wasn’t about to let a “minor” police matter get in the way of proposing to his girlfriend on July 4th, during a celebration of his 35th birthday.

So when cops came to his house to arrest him on six outstanding felony warrants, he waited until the cuffs were slapped on before asking permission to pop the question ahead of being carted off to jail.

“When the other officer told me he was gonna propose I think my initial response was, are you kidding me?” said Muskogee Police Department spokesman Lincoln Anderson to NewsOn6.com.

Police bodycam video show Thompson, with his hands in the air, walking out of his house with family members and children, getting handcuffed, then asking the officer to propose.

Thompson’s girlfriend, Leandria Keith, accepted his proposal, telling NewsOn6: “Oh my gosh is he serious? But I knew I was gonna say yes. Like I love him a lot. We go through our ups and downs. I guess it’s like an unconditional love, you know?”

“It’s not everyday you get asked to let a marriage proposal happen after making an arrest on the soon-to-be groom. But it happened!” the Muskogee Police Department wrote on their Facebook page in a post that has been viewed 12,000 times as of this writing.

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 dangerous substance.

There will certainly be rough times ahead, but here’s to hoping this unusual engagement will be a giant first step towards turning his life around.
