"Do you know how fast you were going?" might be a more common first question when an officer pulls over a motorist.
But in Galveston, Texas, it was "Sarah Jane Wolff, will you be my wife?"
KHOU-TV in Houston has the story of Galveston police officer Gregory Parris, who roped a couple of colleagues into helping him propose to his girlfriend.

Wolff later told KHOU her fiance's cronies "deserve Academy Awards" for helping him stage the proposal.
Wolff was first crying, then laughing as she answered yes. And Parris joked she "might've gone to jail" had she responded differently.
Wolff told KHOU it was a perfect proposal for the couple and Parris deemed it "my number one traffic stop all time, by far."
A July 6 wedding is planned.
