(Scroll down for video) A biker gang held a proposal ceremony on a California highway, which was recorded on video, but the government is very angry and is looking to charge the couple with felonies, according to reports in California.

Hundreds of bikers blocked traffic on a major highway in California so a crew member could propose to his girlfriend.

The police are less than thrilled by the happy couple, and now the pair could face criminal felony charges.

YouTube videos of the event showed a group of hundreds of bikers slowing to a crawl on I-10 near West Covina, stopping traffic along the way.

The groom to-be, identified as Hector Martinez, 24, started the proposal by spinning his back wheel, which was custom designed to emit a large plume of pink smoke, according to reports.

Martinez then jumped off his bike, removed his helmet, got on a knee and asked the question of his girlfriend, Paige Hernandez, also 24 years old.

The California Highway Patrol said that the incident was under investigation and the district attorney was considering slapping the biker couple with felony charges.

"It's dangerous when you do something like that," California Highway Patrol Sergeant Kurt Stormes said.

"You have free flowing traffic, traffic suddenly stops, people do not know what happened and that's when accidents happen," he added.
