When a police officer’s girlfriend was pulled over and asked to perform a DUI test, she had no idea she would end up engaged at the end of it.

Deputy Kevin Bowes persuaded colleagues to help him ask girlfriend Ellen the most important question of his life, by pulling her over and asking her to perform tests usually taken to show a driver is under the influence.

As Ellen touches her index finger to her nose, the officer asks her to turn around. When she does, she discovers her boyfriend on one knee, who asks her to marry him.

After spinning around again from the shock, Ellen drops to the floor in front of Bowes’ Palmdale Sheriff’s office colleagues, agreeing to marry the ecstatic Bowes.

The video was posted on Facebook by the Palmdale Sheriff’s Station accompanying it with a sweet message from the force to one of its members.

“We are so happy for you brother, and thank you for allowing us to be part of this wonderful moment. Welcome to the Tan & Green family, and may you have a wonderful life together.”

Awwww.
