Over-the-top 'promposal' leaves girl in tears

LA PORTE, TX (CNN) -- A Texas teenager shed tears over her prom proposal. No, not out of joy, but out of fear that she'd be arrested.

Police stop people every day, but for La Porte High School senior Andrea Rojas this traffic stop last Friday is one she'll never forget. She said, "I was asked to prom in a peculiar way."

This peculiar prank, police, traffic stop and all part of her classmate Johnny Morales unique plan to ask Andrea to the prom. It's called a "promposal". Johnny Morales said, "I'm always like if you're going to do something you need to go out, you need to do it big or just don't do it."

In the video, Johnny's in the passenger seat of car. Andrea's behind the wheel next to him, panicking and crying at the site of two La Porte police officers who secretly agreed to stage this traffic stop and help Johnny get his date.

Andrea says she thought she was in some serious trouble. She said, "I didn't have my license. It wasn't my car. They told me I was speeding, and I had a tail light out. So I was thinking they are going to give me multiple tickets. I don't know I might get arrested."

Johnny says it was the perfectly executed way to pop the big prom question but admits Andrea's reaction made him a bit nervous. Johnny said, "I knew she was going to cry, but I didn't think she was going to cry that much."

After being asked to exit the car. Andrea, still with tears in her eyes, finds a trunk full of balloons with a sign asking her out to the prom.

Key to making it go off without a hitch, the acting skills of officers Persails and Novosad. Ofc. Matt Novosad said, "It was really hard to keep composure for the rest of the stop, because we knew what the end result was going to be." Andrea adds, "I didn't think he would plan something like this."

Johnny and his friends say it was worth it in the end? Because he got a big yes for a prom night date.

Johnny says he doesn't have any big surprises lined up just yet for prom night. But Andrea says she may have a little something up her sleeve to get back at him.
