DURYEA -- For one man in Luzerne County, thanks to the Duryea Police, he just got a life sentence...willingly!

Yes, you read that right...and some might say it was a crime of passion.

Thanks to some ingenious planning -- and a little assistance from Chief Lohman, Officer Swisher, and Officer Dunn -- Mike Stacey's arrest brought him to his knee!

Stacey plotted with the personnel from the Duryea Police Department and set up a staged arrest at the Germania Hose Company, where Stacey was frisked, read his rights and patiently waited for his soon-to-be betrothed, Amanda Torres, to come out from their vehicle to witness the proposal.

DISCLAIMER: Unedited Facebook video contains a little "bad" language from a very shocked bride-to-be!

Best wishes and congratulations are in order for the couple -- and thanks to a little help from those men and women in uniform, the bride-to-be already has "something blue" checked off her list!

    Enough whining…it is obvious you are not a tax payer…let me guess you probably live at home with mom and dad…or you sponge off the government with section 8…which is it…because if you are a tax payer this nonsene would irritate you.

    My taxes just went to this? These officer’s town has no drug problem they should be combating instead? Well fine then, I want to borrow these cops to do my divorce this way for me too!

    • Enough Whining

      Yeah Jughead, we know. If they were out enforcing traffic laws you’d complain about that. If they were arresting someone for a crime you’d find something else to complain about.
      Your incessant whining and complaining is ridiculous. How can someone go through life as miserable as you are?
