Man proposes to girlfriend as he's being "arrested" in Mass.

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A man pulled off the "perfect" proposal, as he was being patted down by police.

Samantha Labo and Matt Van Vliet's relationship came full circle when they were pulled over. The two met at a police station after getting busted at a college party in Massachusetts four years ago.

Sparks flew after the two finished their breathalyzer tests -- and they've been dating since.

Police in New London, Mass. were in on the fun wedding proposal, and it was caught on dashcam. One officer pretended to put handcuffs on Matt, and when he patted him down, he pulled out an engagement ring.

"I went from being the most terrified I've ever been to probably the most ecstatic," Labo said.

They say they don't plan on getting in trouble with the law anymore.
