A Michigan couple's engagement is off to a rocky start.

Police say a 25-year-old man proposed marriage to a 20-year-old woman at a Bay City Wal-Mart store in front of employees and other shoppers who congratulated them on December 30, 2015.

But that same night, William Cornelius Jr. later was accused of shoplifting at a nearby store and arrested.

The Bay City Times, citing court records, reports his fiancée admitted stolen jewellery was in her possession.

The couple were released on bond.
