The officers couldn't believe what was happening but chose to help Thompson during his big moment.
Police officers were in the process of arresting 35-year-old Brandon Thompson on six felony charges when he asked them if he could propose to his girlfriend before they took him away. The video caught with police body camera shows the touching moment.
Before officers arrived, Thompson was celebrating his birthday and the Fourth of July with family.
Court documents show Thompson's charges included possession of a firearm after a felony conviction, failure to appear in court, and possession of a controlled risky substance. "It took us by surprise that he asked if he could do it", Anderson, who is also the Muskogee police spokesman, told CNN via Facebook.

Trump took to Twitter saying that he, the Pope, and friends in the United Kingdom would be delighted to do so. They are traditional men who believe in the family.
"I know that he loves me and I love him and we can get through anything together", Keith said. "The officer said, 'You want to do what?' and I said, 'I want to propose to her'".
"When the other officer told me he was gonna propose I was think my initial response was are you kidding me", Officer Lincoln Anderson said.
Although he was taken aback when he learned of Thompson's proposal request, Anderson said something good might arise from the instance. That is when he got down on one knee. "I know that he loves me and I love him and we can get through anything together", Keith said. They told CNN they will set a date for their wedding once Thompson's legal troubles are resolved. Thompson's new fiancée celebrated by bailing him out of jail. He was released on bail the next day.
The officers agreed to let Thompson propose.
