    Kevin Bowes, a deputy at the Palmdale station, and his coworkers pulled his girlfriend over, saying that they were doing the traffic stop for a driving under the influence test. As she followed their field sobriety test instructions, Bowes got into position. The final instruction was to have her turn around. When she did, she discovered the deputy on one knee holding a ring box.

    The video was posted on the department’s Facebook page, where it has had more than 238,000 views in two days.

    Before eventually saying yes, she asked Bowes if he was serious. She then ran over to him crying, hugged him then collapsed in his arms, kissing him.
