Smooth Criminal of the Day: Man Proposes to Girlfriend While Under Arrest

While marriage proposal stories each have their own nuances, they are all pretty much the same. Justin Harrel of Oklahoma, however, definitely broke the mold when it came to how a man pops the question. Wanted in two different counties, Justin made sure that he would get down on one knee (in a manner of speaking) before being carted off to the big house. According to Yahoo News,he asked the arresting officer for a bit more time because he had something more he wanted to do:

"I advised Justin that he was under arrest and directed him to turn around and place his hands behind his back," the officer wrote in his police report. "Justin said, 'Steve, let's talk about this. Give me five minutes.'"

When the officer took him into custody, Harrel explained that he was about to propose to his girlfriend. He asked if he could go ahead with the proposal.

s The officer allowed Harrel to complete the marriage proposal, and Harrel's girlfriend eventually said yes. Harrel then asked the officer to get the engagement ring from his coat pocket and give it to her.

The officer handed the ring to the girlfriend.

The new Denny's in Neonopolis in Downtown Las Vegas is catering to the wedding-and-breakfast crowd (translation: drunk people) with an all-inclusive experience. Because there's no better way to celebrate alcohol-soaked Sin City nuptials than with a Grand Slam breakfast. Stay classy, Vegas!
