Guns N' Roses guitarist DJ Ashba was understandably excited earlier this year when he proposed to his girlfriend Nathalia Henao during a special helicopter ride over Las Vegas, but his exuberance landed the police officers who arranged the flight for the musician in hot water.

After Ashba posted about his proposal on Instagram and thanked the officers responsible, the Las Vegas police launched an investigation as the usage of the helicopter broke police protocol. A Las Vegas police captain has now retired in lieu of the investigation, an air support lieutenant was transferred elsewhere and the helicopter pilot who flew the couple is no longer allowed to fly for the Las Vegas Metro Police Department.

Ashba and Henao, who have since wed, may always remember the day, but the officers involved will remember it under less happy circumstances. Meanwhile, the guitarist and his bride have yet to comment publicly on the situation.
