For many people being pulled over by the police is among the most stressful situations possible and would be one of the worst times for a marriage proposal. But that was exactly what Matt Van Vliet did to his girlfriend, Samantha Labo.

In college, Labo and Van Vliet were arrested during a police raid at a party with suspected underage drinking. They both passed the breathalyzer test and met while waiting to get picked up. When they were back at college for a reunion, Van Vliet thought it would be a perfect time to propose. He went to the policeman who arrested them and asked if he would do it again. We applaud his sense of irony.

Scroll down to watch the whole arresting proposal from the police dashcam footage.

      A lot of stupid comments on here... nobody can just take a feel good story. Idiots. I applaud the cops for taking a minute. Most likely all he would have been doing anyway is parking on the side of the road issuing speeding tickets, turning average joes into criminals. Instead they made one family's day.

      She should wait until he goes to sleep and attach a battery via jumper cables to his testicles.

      This just makes it sound like they are mocking law enforcement. The police have more important things to do with their time.

      Shoulda' frisked her and then let the marriage proposal ensue. Overall, this was wasted time.

      All of these stupid marriage antics just to join the ranks of the 51% of marriage failures in the US. I guess the Gays are to blame for that too..
