MORRO BAY, Calif. -- A man who had to be rescued when he climbed a California cliff to propose to his girlfriend via cellphone video later was acting erratically and was found to be high on methamphetamine, authorities said Friday. Morro Bay Fire Chief Steve Knuckles said that 27-year-old Michael Banks was arrested on suspicion of possessing methamphetamine. Knuckles said Banks climbed to the top of the cliff early Thursday to propose. Banks got stuck on the way down. No one has spoken to the girlfriend/AP. More here.
- This incident is of special interest to HucksOnline because former commenter Sam Taylor is now deputy manager of Morro Bay. On his Facebook page, Sam said: "Spent my day dealing with national news media because this guy climbed Morro Rock (illegal) to propose to his girlfriend via FaceTime (she said no!) and then got stuck on his descent. Just shipped the video of his rescue to ABC News's National Desk in New York."
Question: Ah, did you propose in a special way to your one and only?
