Police Officer Loses Job Due To DJ Ashba's Proposal

After Guns N' Roses guitarist DJ Ashba announced on the web that he proposed to his girlfriend during a Las Vegas Police Department helicopter ride, an officer has lost his job. Captain David O'Leary arranged the flight for Ashba and Nathalia Henao, which resulted in questions of improper appropriation of police resources.

Speaking with the Las Vegas Review-Journal, an unnamed officer said that O'Leary was given the choice of demotion or retirement. O'Leary, a vet of 25 years, chose the latter.

"That was the most incredible day of our life!!" Ashba wrote on Instagram at the time. "Special thx to the Las Vegas Police Dept. for the most amazing helicopter private tour over Vegas!"

The Review-Journal notes that O'Leary, an avid music fan, met Ashba through the Vegas music scene.
