Shortly after saying “I do” at his wedding, a Pennsylvania man was placed in handcuffs and taken into police custody.

“You have the right to remain silent,” is not something you usually hear during a wedding ceremony, but this was the case for 42-year-old Todd Sandefer of Milnesville, Pennsylvania.

Sandefer had two outstanding traffic citations and two domestic relations warrants, according to ABC7 News. Weatherly police received a tip that Sandefer was getting married at the Salem UCC church on May 2 and seized the opportunity.

Authorities crashed the wedding and arrested Sandefer right after he told his wife, “I do.” The man was not allowed to enjoy his own wedding reception and his wife had to visit him in jail to retrieve his rented tuxedo, WNEP reported.

But at least Sandefer was able to make it to his wedding.

Enca.com recently reported about a South African man who was arrested for speeding while on his way to his wedding. He was going 100 mph in a 75 mph zone, according to reports. His best man was also arrested, going 110 mph in the same zone.

ABC Australia reported in November about another unfortunate couple, whose wedding also got a visit from police. Authorities were called to the Hobart wedding after the the party turned into a drunken brawl. The groom and best man were arrested and charged with disorderly conduct while the bride was taken to Royal Hobart Hospital for alcohol poisoning.
