Brandon Thompson was at home is Muskogee, Okla., on July 4, celebrating his birthday and Independence Day when police came to arrest him on six outstanding warrants. "Will you be my wife, please?" The bodycam video shows Thompson asking his mother if he should "do it now" and told her to get the ring.
According to NBC New York, Thompson's arrest is related to charges including possession of a firearm after a felony conviction, possession of a controlled risky substance and failure to appear in court.
His girlfriend, Leandria Keith, said yes. "I was shocked", Keith told CNN.
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 love him. I'm ready to spend the rest of my life with him", Keith said.
Instagram Stories adds unique feature, Snapchat is shook
As is the case with disappearing photos and videos in Direct , users' friends will know if they replayed a reply or screenshot it. Instagram's ephemeral Stories has been around for less than a year, but it's already beaten Snapchat at its own game.
According to KOTV News, the groom-to-be was taken to the county jail to face multiple charges, including possession of a firearm by a felon, possession of a controlled substance and failure to appear in court.
Keith also credits the police for allowing her boyfriend to propose, calling them "amazing". "Police officers are human".
"We all want to see someone get their life on track", said Anderson. He was released from jail just one day later after his future wife pulled their savings together to bail him out. "Sometimes the smallest gesture of kindness is the biggest influence in someone's life".
It was a surprise unlike any other this Fourth of July for some Muskogee police officers and one lucky lady.
