Guns N' Roses guitarist DJ Ashba posted an Instagram detailing his romantic proposal to his girlfriend, Colombian actress and model Nathalia Henao.
Many of DJ Ashba's 1 million followers congratulated him, but Las Vegas police are investigating whether some members went too far in helping him pull off his grand plan.
The issue comes at a bad time for the Las Vegas police department:
The helicopter ride comes as the department is already strapped for cash. Last week, Sheriff Doug Gillespie continued his push to increase sales tax in Clark County – which includes Las Vegas – from 8.1 to 8.25 percent. The tax initiative, dubbed "More Cops," is aimed at plugging a $30 million budget hole, thereby saving some positions from being cut and allowing new officers to be hired.
Which explains why not everybody was overjoyed for DJ Ashba.
