Greg Parris, an officer with the Galveston Police Department, planned the unique proposal to his girlfriend Sarah Wolff with the help of his fellow officers, KHOU reported.

The dashcam video, obtained by KHOU, shows the officer pulling Wolff over and telling her she has a broken tail light.

He then tells her she has to get out of her car because she has outstanding warrants. Wolff was so convinced by the officer that she began to cry.

All involved deserve Academy Awards, she later told KHOU.

However, her tears soon turned happy when Parris arrived and got down on one knee.
