Man arrested at his own wedding

Wedding tip of the day: if you have an arrest warrant, don't get married at the courthouse. Better yet, don't have an arrest warrant.

A man described by Utah authorities as Salt Lake County's Public Enemy No. 1 was arrested when he came into a courthouse to get married. Uintah County Sheriff's Lt. John Laursen said someone recognized Frank Paul Reyos, 27, when he arrived Tuesday at Ute Tribal Court [there's never been a better time for me to ask: What's a Ute?] in Fort Duchesne with the intent to marry a young woman, the Salt Lake Tribune reported Thursday.

Reyos, who is wanted on a no-bail fugitive warrant for aggravated robbery by the Salt Lake County Metro Gang Unit, was arrested without incident and taken to a jail in Vernal, Utah. The suspect, who police say is linked to violent street gangs in the Salt Lake City area, has previous arrests for aggravated assault, vehicle theft, robbery and multiple theft charges. Police said he was recognized due to his many facial tattoos, including a spiderweb on his forehead.

Nothing says class like a forehead tattoo. I'm so disappointed that I couldn't find his mugshot.

  1. Better late than never! The Ute are a Native American tribe after whom the state of Utah was named. :)
