The son of a Fenton Township family appeared in a Good Morning America segment Saturday, Nov. 30 after his proposal to his now-wife was shared online.

In the video, Grant Speace, 24, who attended West Shore Elementary in Lake Fenton Community Schools as a kid, was driving with his girlfriend, Hailey Stultz, 23, when they were pulled over by police on Sunday, Nov. 24. An officer told them there was a warrant out for Speace, and they both get out of the car.
Instead of being arrested, Speace got down on one knee and proposed. Police body camera footage captured the moment.
Speace is in the Coast Guard, currently stationed in Portsmouth, New Hampshire, and flew to Cincinnati last Friday. He asked for her family’s blessing to marry Stultz last Saturday and did the proposal on Sunday.
They shopped for wedding clothes on Monday and were married this past Tuesday, Nov. 26. Stultz wore Speace’s mother’s wedding dress for the ceremony.
Speace flew back Wednesday and his ship left Friday.
They both graduated high school in Ohio in 2014.
