VIDEO: Texas Officer Proposes to Girlfriend at Traffic Stop

A Texas police officer arranged for officers to pull over his girlfriend so he could propose.

Officer Gregory Parris of the Galveston (Texas) Police Department watched from his squad car as another officer turned on his siren and pulled over his girlfriend, USA Today reports.

When Sara Wolff looked up, she knew she was getting pulled over, but didn't know why.

A patrol car video shows the officer walk to her window and tell her she has a broken tail light and outstanding warrants. Wolff is asked to get out of the car.

Parris then drives up and walks toward his shocked girlfriend. Wolff realizes what's happening as Parris gets down on one knee.

Very BAD taste with the media focus on us. On the clock, vehicle abuse comes to mind. Leave the emotions at home, propose on your own time.

With as many officers that were involved, including an LT, im sure he had the permission of his supervisors to do this as he knew word was gonna get out. Our profession gives us very few benefits, so if he wants to take 15min to propose to his girlfriend in a unique way, good for him. Its not abuse of dept vehicles or city time, give me a break. Lighten up Francis.

I thought it was great. I have been a police officer for 39 years and thought it was in very good taste. Best wishes to the both of you and we welcome another to our Police family!!!
