Guns N' Roses' DJ Ashba had a big weekend, getting engaged to his girlfriend, Colombian actress and model Nathalia Henao in Las Vegas. But the guitarist had some help from Las Vegas police, and now the department is investigating whether employees broke department regulations in assisting Ashba's proposal, The Associated Press reports.

Ashba posted an Instagram photo of himself with Henao on Saturday. "Special [thanks] to the Las Vegas Police Dept. for the most amazing helicopter private tour over Vegas!" Ashba wrote. "We landed in a field at police headquarters were I had a table set up covered in roses [and] a bottle of the bubble stuff." The photo followed another of a ring with the simple caption "She said yes!!!" Guns N' Roses' publicist confirmed the Instagram account and said the couple were engaged last Wednesday.

Las Vegas police are now looking into the situation. The police department acknowledged that two civilians were granted a helicopter ride-along, though they did not specify names and gave few details. "An internal affairs investigation has been initiated to determine if any department policies or regulations were violated in granting this ride-along," spokesman Bill Cassell said.
