Ever thought of making a grand entrance to your Prom Night? Having a Luxury limousine or party bus is part of it and could do the trick, however this Kansas high school students arrived to their high school prom with lights and music — not sirens — thanks to help from the Greenwood County Sheriff’s Office.
The couple rode in a sheriff’s car to Madison High School for thier prom night — with the boyfrriend handcuffed in the backseat.
“Jokingly I said to my mom, ‘I wonder if he’d (Deputy Dave Oehm) let me handcuff my boyfriend and put him in the back,’ ” Berndt said in a Facebook message. “My mom took it seriously and said ‘yes!! Do that! It would be hilarious’ … so then I Facebook messaged Officer Oehm to see if he thought it was a good idea … it took a little bit of planning, but I think it turned out great! I was worried no one would find it as funny as I did.”
The couple has had a “cop theme” throughout the entire prom season, Huber’s mom, Michelle, posted on Facebook.
Huber had asked Berndt to prom by having a deputy pull her over. Huber then presented a sign that read, “Can I cop you into going to prom?”
The inspiration for a police-themed prom came from the school’s positive relationship with the Sheriff’s Office, Berndt said.
“While discussing different ideas of cars that I should drive to prom, I thought of Officer Oehm,” she said. “Knowing his fun personality, I figured he would be open to the thought of taking my date and I to prom along with his (police) dog Karma.”
Police dog Karma also got to have some prom fun, visiting with students as they boarded the bus for the after-prom event.
