Police officers often encounter individuals on challenging days, but this day was unique.
Troy Goldschmidt, a computer scientist, engaged the assistance of the Eau Claire Police Department in Wisconsin for an extraordinary marriage proposal on a brisk November day.
The couple had previously shared a memorable and favorable experience with Officer Maggie Andersen. This interaction occurred when Moriah Prichard misplaced her phone during a visit to the city.
Remembering this positive encounter, Goldschmidt specifically requested Officer Andersen's participation in his proposal plan, as detailed by Josh Miller, the public information officer of the Eau Claire Police Department.
The next visit to the town, located around 90 miles east of Minneapolis, saw Goldschmidt and Miller collaborate on organizing the stop.
Right after their arrival, and before they could even check into their hotel, the couple was pulled over at an intersection.
"Is this like recently issued or anything?" an officer asks, after pretending to run Goldschmidt's license.
"I mean I got the new ID thing," Goldschmidt replied with a slight grin that Prichard couldn't see at the time.
The video transitions to footage from Officer Andersen's body camera as she approaches the passenger side of the car to speak with Prichard. Andersen then guides Prichard out of the vehicle while her colleague feigns handcuffing Goldschmidt, alleging a problem with his driver's license.
In a twist, Goldschmidt busts out a ring, kneels down, and proposes.
"Moriah," he said, timed perfectly just as she turned around. "I love you so much. You're my best friend. I want to spend the rest of my life with you."
He then proposed to her. She obviously accepted. Expressing his gratitude, he later posted on Facebook, thanking the police for capturing this special moment on their body cameras.
"I'm glad you had the video because I barely remember what I said," he wrote. "Neither Moriah and I have been able to stop smiling!"
