Proposal caught on cop's dash cam

WATCH: Proposal Caught On Cop Dash Cam

A woman thought her boyfriend was getting arrested during a routine traffic stop in New London, New Hampshire, but it was all just a set-up.

One of the officers pretended he was taking Matt into custody while girlfriend Samantha watched in shock.

The officer pulled out a box that held -- to Samantha's surprise -- a ring! Matt got down on one knee and proposed to Samantha while the police car's dash cam recorded the whole thing.

The groom-to-be says the couple met at a police station during their freshman year in college after a party they attended was busted.

Matt said he 'figured since we kind of met in prison it would be kind of appropriate to do it that way.' 'It's not as bad as it sounds,' Samantha laughed.

As for the not-so-routine traffic stop, Samantha says that celebrating with her friends and family, who were waiting nearby, made it worth it in the end.

'I went from being the most terrified I've ever been to probably the most ecstatic,' Samantha said.

The couple was in town for a class reunion. They say they're trying to pay off student loans before ringing any wedding bells.

Asking her if she wanted to marry me was easy. Asking her parents for their permission was scary.

Yea, they will play "pants on the ground" as their wedding theme song.

This is so cool. Perhaps the cop had just gone off duty. Either way, I would much rather see my tax dollars go to someone's happiness than to lining some politician's pocket.

Instead of the vapid talking head telling us about the video, why not just show the thing in its entirety? I would much rather have seen that instead of the two second clips we did see.

there's a line in a Frank Turner song (Recovery) that they'll enjoy: "If anybody ever asks us, let's just tell them that we met in jail."

Some police officers are truly that. They are officers and gentlemen and they keep your faith in being able to trust and believe in the system. I loved this video and the way the police went along. Congratulation to the couple and hopefully they'll never have to find themselves in a police station for any reason again.

:-( At least this wasn't a report of some schnook getting his head bashed in repeatedly with a cop's baton! Or, is it?

With the way she accepted it so well... I think it was adorable to have it setup with her family and friends that were there... It showed her how much he loved her family and friend the way he did it...

I think it's wonderful that the police serve their community in a positive way.
