A lot of people do not consider a handcuffed proposal to be ideal, especially after you’ve just been arrested for multiple crimes, but for Leandria Keith, it was perfect.
Apparently, nothing was going to stop this Oklahoma man from getting down on one knee and popping the question to his girlfriend – even an arrest warrant.
According to reports, police turned up at Brandon Thompson and his family’s home to arrest him for six felony warrants. They were celebrating the Fourth of July — which also happens to be his birthday.
An officer’s body camera video captured this unusual arrest. Thompson was seen walking out to the cruiser before he suddenly stops and asks the officer if he could do something.
When he got the go signal from the officer, Thompson drops to one knee and asks Keith to marry him.
With his hands cuffed behind him, Thompson couldn’t present Keith with a ring, but she still said “Yes” to the proposal.
“I knew I was gonna say yes,” the bride-to-be said. “Like, I love him a lot. We go through our ups and downs. I guess it’s like unconditional love, you know?”
Keith said it feels “very amazing” to be engaged. The couple plans to get married once they have dealt with Thompson’s legal troubles.
“Maybe by him taking this step to propose to her, so they can get married, he can take a step to getting his life together and putting these warrants behind him and improving the life of his kids and his future wife,” Muskogee Police Department spokesman Lincoln Anderson told the outlet.
