JOHNSTON, IOWA – A terrified woman watched helplessly as her boyfriend was pulled out of his car during a traffic stop and seemingly placed in handcuffs and about to be arrested.
The woman was then asked by the officer to step out of the car.
That’s when her boyfriend went to one knee and revealed a sparkling engagement ring and asked her to marry him. Through tears of joy, she says yes.
The boyfriend, Jeff Schlute, enlisted the help of the Johnston Police Department for the proposal.
Officer Matt Chiles was happy to play the role of arresting officer during the proposal and even used his body camera to capture the event for posterity.
Chiles had actually pulled Schlute over for speeding several months ago, but this time their meeting was a much happier one.
