Interviewed by GMA News, the police officer, PO2 Ronnie Beñosa Candelaria, said he finds nothing wrong with it. He was already off duty at the time and he just wanted to help a friend make the wedding proposal.

PNP chief, Ronald ‘Bato’ dela Rosa agreed. He said no police protocol was violated by the stunt.

“Kung pre-arranged naman ‘yun, meron silang prearranged na usapan doon sa aarestuhin nila at ‘yun nakakatulong sa kanya, may na-violate ba pulis dun? Wala naman siguro,” said Bato.

The video has now been viewed almost 1.5 million times.
