A lawmaker in Maryland has reimbursed police in Baltimore for a marriage proposal stunt that involved department resources. Delegate Jon Cardin had police perform a mock search for contraband on a boat in Baltimore's Inner Harbor where he proposed to Megan Homer of Rockville. A police helicopter flew overhead.
Cardin submitted $300 check to reimburse the department and made numerous apologies on his website to police, who are under investigation. A spokesman with the police says the department based the figure on the hourly rate paid to the officers in the stunt, which lasted about 13 minutes. Fuel for the helicopter also was included.
As for the proposal, Ms. Homer did say "yes."
