HS junior schemes with West Linn PD to ask girlfriend to dance

Posted: Updated:
WEST LINN, OR (KPTV) -

Jake Meisen had just days to go before the winter ball at West Linn High School, and he wanted to ask his girlfriend Aly Sato in a creative way.

"She said that if she were to do it, she would do it creatively so obviously that was a hint to do something original," he explained.

With a little white lie and some help from Sgt. Mike Francis of the West Linn Police Department, Jake pulled off an elaborate proposal to ask his girlfriend to the winter ball.

Jake told Aly he had stolen a teacher's computer that had the answers to their upcoming final exam.

When they were leaving the school, lights popped up behind Jake’s car.

“She was like, ‘Jake pull over, pull over,’" Hake recalled.

The junior pulled over, and to Aly's surprise, he was handcuffed and taken to the back of the patrol car.

Sgt. Francis then stepped on to the stage, telling Aly that Jake was going with the officers, and asking if she wanted to tell him goodbye.

That's when the surprise hit.

Jake stepped out of the patrol car with a sign reading, "it's a crime to go without me" and flowers.

"I heard an audible gasp of, ‘Oh thank goodness,’" Sgt. Francis said.

The proposal video is going viral online, being shared around Facebook and YouTube.

Sgt. Francis said he loves doing things like this, noting it brightens his day.

And how did Aly feel about the whole thing?

"She was a little angry,” Jake said. “She won't admit it to anyone else, but she was mad, she was like, ‘Why would you do that to me?’"

The elaborate proposal had a happy ending, as Jake and Aly are all set to go to the dance Saturday.
