UPDATED: Get A Load Of This Asshole That Shut Down A Busy Houston Highway To Propose

Updated December 15, 2015 4:53 p.m.


It looks like these major league jerks won’t get away with their antics after all. Per Hot 95-7 FM Houston, charges are being pressed:

Now ABC 13 reports, “the Harris County District Attorney’s Office is charging both Vidal Valladares, 24, and Michelle Wycoff, 23, with obstruction of highway, a class b misdemeanor.”

We’ll keep you updated when there are more details on the situation. I’m sure everyone stuck in traffic is feeling pretty good about this now. #Justice

Sure, it’s only a misdemeanor, but still. As the “most hated people in Houston” right now, I’d suggest they keep their head on a swivel next time they go out.

There are a lot of shitty things that you can do when getting engaged — proposing at someone else’s wedding, doing it on Christmas, being that couple on the jumbotron. The list goes on. But this Houston couple just went next-level and made an entire city hate them in one fell swoop.

Just for those of you that don’t know — I-45 in Houston is a fucking nightmare. I’ve been on a schedule of driving it about once a month, and every time I exit, I consider buying a desolate cabin in the northwoods of Canada hoping to never see another human being again. The thought of driving on it makes me want to personally fund autonomous vehicles, so the thought of stepping foot on it and stopping traffic could not be further out of the realm of possibility than it currently is for me.

Without further ado, I present to you recipients of the 2015 Assholes Of The Year Award:

I normally don’t condone people that go rogue on the shoulder of the highway to get around things, but it could not be more warranted than it was Sunday night when this all went down. Me? I’m shocked and amazed that someone didn’t Suge Knight them, especially given how this all went down. Per The Houston Chronicle:

In a video posted on Instagram, Vidal Valladares Navas enlisted his friends to stand in front of lanes of traffic while he proposed to his girlfriend Michelle Wycoff in the middle of the highway near downtown Houston.

This isn’t a romantic gesture. This is insanity. Hey man, if you wanted to do something different, maybe you should’ve thought of something that didn’t piss off the 4th largest city in the nation. I mean, just look at these two.

I’d question this guy’s sanity purely based on this borderline suicidal act, but he’s wearing a white cowl neck fucking sweater in the middle of December so he’s not exactly of sound mind. Like, come on, bro. White after Labor Day? Pull yourself together, man.

She’s since made her Instagram account private for reasons that I have to assume have to do with the Instagram version of receiving hate mail. Luckily, you can view her video here, along with all the idiotic congratulatory comments from her friends.

I’m legitimately pissed she said yes to this guy given his poor decision-making and general lack of self-awareness. Be better, Michelle.
