Not happy ever after for proposal planners

– A Las Vegas police captain who helped a rock star pull off an elaborate wedding proposal by arranging a flight on a department helicopter has retired rather than face demotion, and the pilot’s flying wings have been clipped, the agency confirmed.

Capt. David O’Leary faced demotion to lieutenant for helping arrange the Aug. 7 private flight for Guns N’ Roses guitarist Daren Jay “DJ” Ashba and his then-girlfriend, Colombian actress Nathalia Henao, the police department said Tuesday.

O’Leary, a 25-year veteran who oversaw the Financial Crimes Bureau, instead retired Dec. 20.

Officer Ray Horsley, who piloted the helicopter, is being transferred out of the Air Support Detail and will no longer be allowed to fly for the department, police officials said.

The discipline follows a four-month investigation launched after Ashba posted a photo on Instagram of himself and Henao wearing helicopter headgear and thanked the Las Vegas Police Department for “the most amazing” private helicopter tour over the city.

The couple married in September.
