Florida Woman Arrested at Her Wedding
Shortly after promising to love, cherish, and obey, a Florida woman had to agree that she had the right to remain silent. Tammy Lee Hinton -- who was living in New Port Richey, Florida -- was a wanted woman in Michigan. Michigan cops, acting on a tip that she'd be returning to the state for her wedding, arrested her shortly after the vows. It all resulted in a rare combination of mug shot and wedding portrait.
According to the Smoking Gun, Hinton, 50, was wanted in Michigan for felony identity theft. She had temporarily escaped the charges by living in Florida. However, Michigan police decided to move when they found out her wedding was being held in their state.
Cops at least let her go through with the vows but then hauled her off to the station before the reception. She was released on $2,000 bond.
