KHOU / Via

Greg Parris, an officer with the Galveston Police Department, planned the unique proposal to his girlfriend Sarah Wolff with the help of his fellow officers, KHOU reported.

He then tells her she has to get out of her car because she has outstanding warrants. Wolff was so convinced by the officer that she began to cry.


"I can't imagine being proposed to any better than that," Wolff told KHOU. "It was perfect for us."


The happy couple set their wedding date for July.

"This is my number one all-time traffic stop by far," Parris said.

BuzzFeed News has reached out to Parris for comment on his adorable proposal.
