Man back in jail for driving 100 mph—to his wedding

An Indiana man just released from jail was sent back after being pulled over for speeding to his own nuptials, reports the Northwest Indiana Times.

Timothy N. Thompson, 23, was sent to the Porter County jail, from where he said he had been released earlier the same day.

In addition to speeding at an estimated 100 mph, Thompson was cited for resisting law enforcement, criminal recklessness and reckless driving in his Jeep Grand Cherokee.

But Thompson, who did not make the ceremony, did manage to evade police long enough to pull into the church parking lot where his wedding was about to take place.

Three of Thompson's relatives began "flailing their arms and yelling at him," to which Thompson responded by accelerating, doing a "doughnut" and "creating a thick blanket of tire smoke," according to the police report obtained by the Times.

1. Damn. Sounds like the police short-circuited what was meant to be the wedding

of the century. How many epic youtube videos would have been produced over the course of an event that started so promisingly?
