It’s all drama all the time with Sofia Vergara! She can’t even get engaged without almost getting arrested right afterward.

The Modern Family star was on The Ellen DeGeneres Show and told the story of how she got engaged to her fiance, Nick Loeb. "It was a very big surprise, I didn't know I was going to get engaged," she said, "and it was on the celebration of my 40th birthday. I had a very big birthday in Mexico."

She and some friends went to a tourist destination, the Chichen Itza pyramids, when Nick took her past a security checkpoint to do a special proposal. Ellen asked if the rope around the area warned her that she shouldn’t be going over there. “Yeah,” Sofia said, “but he had said he had gotten permission. I swear to God he said he had gotten permission to go up there and take a picture, so I said, ‘OK let's go.’ So I went up he took the ring out there. I made sure I like it. …  I like it, I put it on immediately and I said yes …  but then when we came down they want to arrest us because … local people got really upset and they thought I was take advantage of the situation, but it was not true.”

No, her fiance was taking advantage of the situation! No matter, it just makes the moment more memorable. They just probably shouldn’t go back there anytime soon.
