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.

The San Gabriel Valley Tribune reports four people were arrested last week on suspicion of being a public nuisance and taking part in an unlawful assembly. Three were released on bail and one remains jailed Tuesday.

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

The stunt was captured on video and went viral on the Internet.

It only lasted about two minutes but authorities weren’t amused.
