4 Bikers Arrested For Marriage Proposal Motorcycle Stunt On Freeway

WEST COVINA, Calif. (AP) — Four men — including the would-be groom — have been arrested for a marriage proposal stunt in which hundreds of motorcycles blocked a Southern California freeway, authorities said.

The prospective groom and three of his friends were all booked for investigation of misdemeanor public nuisance and participating in an unlawful assembly. The 24-year-old groom, Hector Martinez of Covina, also was booked for investigation of exhibition of speed, the San Gabriel Valley Tribune reported Tuesday.

As many as 250 motorcycles blocked the eastbound Interstate 10 in West Covina on Jan. 27 so that Martinez could propose to his girlfriend. At one point, a bike sent up a cloud of pink smoke.

The stunt, which lasted about two minutes, was captured on video and went viral on the Internet.

Martinez’s bride-to-be accepted the proposal. She is not facing any charges.

Three members of a rock band were each sentenced to probation last year and 35 days of community service for blocking a freeway to promote their music.
