LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - A Kentucky woman drove off from a recent traffic stop with an engagement ring instead of a ticket.

University of Kentucky Police helped retired Shepherdsville Police Officer Rocco Besednjak propose by pulling over his girlfriend, Lauren Vincent, on Thursday in Lexington.

The officer pulled over Vincent and said there was something dragging behind her car. When she got out to look, Besednjak was on one knee asking her to marry him. She said yes. The plan took five or six months to plot out.

Video of the proposal can be seen below.

Vincent works at the University of Kentucky's Children's Hospital.

Besednjak is medically retired after a woman ran him over last summer while he attempted to arrest her. Last week, he had back surgery.

On July 3, 2016, a Shepherdsville Police Officer's body camera recorded a woman running over Officer Rocco Besednjak as he was attempting to arrest her on an outstanding warrant. The woman was approached by Besednjak while standing next to a gas pump in a convenience store parking lot. Besednjak was dragged nearly 20 feet, and his leg was run over according to an officer who witnessed the incident.

Unable to continue work, he was forced to retire from the police force.
