Royal Oak Police helps man propose on anniversary of first date

April 17 is a day he, or she, will never forget. After all, it was on that day the man and woman went on their first date and, now, that date is the date he asked THE question.

So what's unique about the date and why are we talking about it? 

Go back to April 17, 2013. The man and woman in the video above were on their first date. They were in Royal Oak when, suddenly, the blue and red lights flashed and they were pulled over.

Fast forward to April 17, 2015. It happened again. They were out on a date for second anniversary when Royal Oak cops pulled over their truck near downtown. 

The officers treated it like many other stops. They pulled him over, talked to him, had him step out of the truck and even frisked him. That's where they found the ring. 

See, the man, who police identify in the video only as Mr. Ross, was holding a ring. He was ready to ask his then-girlfriend the big question and he asked for help from Royal Oak Police. The men in blue were happy to oblige.

Here's what Royal Oak Police wrote about the proposal: 

"On April 17, 2013, a young man was pulled over by a Royal Oak Police officer while on his first date with a young woman.

Two years later to the day, he asked the ROPD for help with his marriage proposal to that very same young woman.

Royal Oak police were happy to accommodate him."

By the way, she said yes. But only after calling him an expletive! Watch the touching video above (FOX 2 App users click here).
