Who in the world proposes by mailing an engagement ring? Maybe a soldier overseas, but that was not the case for Dallas Cowboys’ wide receiver Roy Williams. According to The Washington Post, The Odessa American reported:
“Williams is suing his former girlfriend Brooke Daniels in an attempt to get back a $75,000 engagement ring which he sent to her in February. Williams apparently sent Daniels the ring, some money for dental bills, and a taped wedding proposal by mail (yes, by mail!) in an attempt to woo the former 2009 Miss Texas.”
Although the former Miss Texas rejected Williams’ proposal, she failed to send back the big buck engagement ring. After claiming that she lost it, Williams’ found out that her father has it. The Washington Post also reports that “Michael Daniels, told the newspaper that he planned on returning the ring to avoid any legal hassles saying, ‘I want to wash my hands of it. It’s just a hassle. I’ll take care of my daughter. I don’t need him.'” For that to be father Daniels’ answer, one would think that he would have given the ring back before now. Anyhow, we will see how long it takes for him to give back the ring now that a lawyer is involved.
