Couple faces criminal charges after proposing on California highway

By your jewish news | February 2nd 2013

A biker gang held a proposal ceremony on a California highway, which was recorded on video, but the government is very angry and is looking to charge the couple with felonies, according to press reports in California.

Hundreds of bikers blocked traffic on a major highway in California this weekend so a crew member could propose to his girlfriend.

But the police are less than thrilled by the happy couple, and now the pair could face criminal felony charges.

 YouTube Videos of the event showed a group of hundreds of bikers slowing to a crawl on I-10 near West Covina, stopping traffic along the way.
The groom to-be, identified as Hector Martinez, 24, started the proposal by spinning his back wheel, which was custom designed to emit a large plume of pink smoke, according to local press reports.
Martinez then jumped off his bike, removed his helmet, got on a knee and asked the question of his girlfriend, Paige Hernandez, also 24.

 The California Highway Patrol said that the incident was under investigation and the district attorney was considering slapping the biker couple with felony charges.

"It's dangerous when you do something like that," California Highway Patrol Sergeant, Kurt Stormes, told a local newspaper in San Bernardino.

"You have free flowing traffic, traffic suddenly stops, people do not know what happened and that's when accidents happen," he added.
