Muskogee Woman Says 'Yes' To Marriage Proposal During Boyfriend's Arrest

Woman says

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. In the heat of that moment, Thompson must have decided he needed just one more special moment and asked officers if they would let him get down on his knee and propose to his girlfriend. "I didn't want to part ways with her not showing exactly how I feel for her", Thompson told CNN by phone.

Before officers arrived, Thompson was celebrating his birthday and the Fourth of July with family. An officer had seen Thompson earlier that day and recognized him from several felony warrants that had been put out for his arrest, so he followed Thompson to the home.

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

Officer Lincoln Anderson said: 'It took us by surprise that he asked if he could do it'. He wanted to propose to his girlfriend, while still in handcuffs. "Will you be my wife, please?"

Keith said yes. The officer wearing the bodycam then switched Thompson's handcuffed hands from his back to his front so he could place the ring on Keith's finger. She said yes! Oh, and the Muskogee Police Department arrested him too, but whatever, that's a small detail. I don't want them to make the same mistakes I've made'.

Keith later used all her savings to bail the love of her life out of jail a day after his arrest. She thanked police for allowing her boyfriend to propose - calling them "amazing".

"I was shocked", Keith exclaimed.

"Police officers are human", he told CNN. His next court appearance is scheduled for July 17. "Sometimes the smallest gesture of kindness is the biggest influence in someone's life".
