(Newser) – Two people meet in jail and fall in love—and now, their proposal video has gone viral. The New Hampshire couple, Matt Van Vliet and Samantha Labo, were freshmen in college when they were arrested by police chief Edward Anderson for suspicion of underage drinking. The two didn't know each other at the time. But their arrest grew into a relationship, and four years later, Van Vliet wanted to surprise his girlfriend. So he called up his old police buddy—the officer who had arrested the pair four years ago—who decided he wanted in on the proposal plot.
