The officers couldn't believe what was happening but made a decision to help Thompson during his big moment.

In a moment captured on police bodycam footage, Brandon Thompson dropped to one knee to pop the question, even after he'd been handcuffed by police due to six felony warrants.

A couple in Oklahoma didn't let a pair of handcuffs stop them from getting engaged.

Thompson's family had been celebrating his birthday and Independence Day in their front yard when police showed up to the scene.

He was arrested for possession of a firearm by a felon, possession of a controlled substance and failure to appear in court.

"It took us by surprise that he asked if he could do it", said Officer Lincoln Anderson.

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.

Although he was taken aback when he learned of Thompson's proposal request, Anderson said something good might arise from the instance.

"When the other officer told me he was gonna propose I think my initial response was, are you kidding me?" "I guess it's like an unconditional love, you know?" said Leandria Keith, bride-to-be.

"Hopefully it will help him make the choices it will take to support his future wife and his kids", Anderson told CNN.

The couple is planning to set a wedding date after the legal troubles have been resolved. He was released on bail the next day.

The police officers hope that people will be able to see the human side of law enforcement after Thompsons' proposal scenario.
