jeff schulte is s really in trouble this time. he's pulled over by johnston police for the second timi in a year. except this time, you're loooing at a set-up. this police body cam video captures a very clever plan between jeff and johnston police. nats - more interaction between jeff and officer a year ago at thanksgiving time it was for real. jeff was actually ticketed for speeding right in front of his girlfriend's'sarent's house when he was going to meet them for the first time. her whole family saw it. jeff was embarrassed. so a year later, when jeff decided to propose to jenna, he figured johnston p.d. might do him a favor. sb jeff "wanted to do something crazy." "a lot of timing involved, i was nervous." he and officer matt chiles, the same guy who gave him the real ticket a year earlier, worked it all out. nats - you were doing 46 in a 35 a bogus speeding violation. jeff was even pretend handcuffed behind his car. and jenna was finally asked to get out of the car too. nats from cop -- would you get out
merchandise to seeee if it's stolen. he has a theft warrant. the look on jenna's face proves she has no idea what's going on, and the next few moments are priceless. nats - will you marry me? her reaction up until they hug sb - it took my emotions to the extreme. i was in shock for a long long time and it was a welcome break from the difficult work of real policing for officer matt chiles. sb -- just a nice break to be able to do something fun like this.
