A Missouri woman got a proposal she wasn’t expecting when she and her boyfriend were pulled over by police.  The couple, Austin Urhan and Samantha Watson, were driving to Scott City, Mo. to see relatives according to WFSB when an officer from the Scott County Sherrif's Office stopped the pair for a traffic violation. When the cop signaled for Urhan to pull over, he acted like he was shocked that he was being pulled over. Watson said in a Facebook post detailing the incident that she was shocked as well because Urhan wasn't speeding like he usually does.

After the officer took Urhan’s license and registration, he came back to their car and asked if they had been speeding on the highway, according to WFSB. Urhan confessed to going 80 miles per hour. Then the officer asked Urhan to step out of the vehicle. He searched Urhan and asked him what he had in his pocket. The officer told Urhan he was going to do “life” for what he had in his pocket. The officer then told Urhan to get down on his knees and put his hands behind his head. Urhan complied. The officer left Urhan in the kneeling position while he went to get his camera for evidence. When Watson turned around to see what was happening, she noticed that Urhan had a ring in his hand and was proposing to her.

Watson was stunned. Watson said that Urhan’s proposal was worth the wait in her Facebook post. “At the age of 18 I was infatuated with you, at the age of 25 I'm still infatuated with you, and now I get to marry you and spend 100+ more years being infatuated with you. They say 'good things come to those who wait,' and boy was this good!” Urhan and Watson plan on getting married next year according to WFSB.

The police officer, who was in on the proposal took pictures of the incident and even recorded the proposal on his dashcam. The Scott County Sherrif's Department shared the video on its Facebook page where it has received more than 3 million views.
