ELK CITY, Oklahoma -

An Elk City man proposed to his girlfriend while an officer was trying to arrest him on two outstanding warrants.

According to Elk City police, at about 6:45 p.m. Friday, an officer saw 32-year-old Justin Other Harrel standing in line at the Carousel at Ackley Park, and determined that Harrel has two outstanding warrants out of Washita and Greer Counties.

According to court documents, in both counties, Harrel is wanted for obtaining cash and/or merchandise by bogus check.

Police say Harrel resisted arrest at first. When the officer eventually took him into custody, he explained that he was about to propose to his girlfriend and asked if he could go ahead and do so.

The officer said he allowed Harrel to complete the marriage proposal, and his girlfriend said yes. Harrel then asked the officer to get the ring from his left inside coat pocket and give it to her.

The officer obtained the ring and handed it to the girlfriend, according to the police report.

Harrel was then transported to the Elk City Police Department as he awaits transport by Washita County or Greer County authorities. He was not cited for resisting an officer.
