An Ohio man’s attempt at a romantic marriage proposal landed him in jail instead of at the altar.
The owner of a shopping center called police to report an act of vandalism. Someone had spray-painted the side of a building with a message that read, “Michelle Marry Me I love you 3-17-17 Familia” and added a red heart. A couple of days later, police received an anonymous tip from a caller who named 24-year-old Kyle Stump as someone who had recently gotten engaged to a woman named Michelle.
Police looked into Stump and found a handwritten statement from him that they compared to the writing on the wall. It looked like a match, so they called him down to the station, where he admitted to the illegal proposal. He was charged with criminal mischief. But on the bright side, Michelle said yes. (Fox News)
