ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) -- The Brevard County sheriff temporarily donned some cupid wings this week as he facilitated a marriage proposal to a dispatcher.
Sheriff Jack Parker got on the county-wide radio for what he called an important announcement. Deputy Joseph Bracey then came on air to announce his love for sheriff's dispatcher Ashley West and declare that he wanted to spend the rest of his life with her. He added: "Will you marry me?"
After a brief pause, West replied: "Yes, I will marry you." She then promptly burst into tears, as dispatchers from around the county radioed in their congratulations.
Bracey took some ribbing from fellow deputies for the gesture but says it was worth it.
