Illich Guardiola, 41, was recently charged with the sexual assault of a child, who also happens to be his 16-year-old wife.
Guardiola, a drama teacher and voiceover actor, was pulled over by police in Spring Valley, a Houston suburb, in April for a normal traffic stop.
Police asked him about his relationship with the teen girl who was riding with him, reports Click 2 Houston (video below).
The teen told police that she was one of his students and he was simply giving her a ride home.
After being pulled over by the police, Guardiola married the teenager in Las Vegas with the approval of her mom, who witnessed the bizarre nuptials, reported Reuters.
However, police believe Guardiola was in a sexual relationship with the teen girl before the two were married.
According to court papers, the teen later told police that she had sex with Guardiola before they were married. Police found multiple text messages from her to Guardiola, one of which reportedly said, "I love having sex with you."
Even though the couple is legally married now, Guardiola was arrested last Thursday for sex with a child, which is defined under Texas law as a person under 17 years of age.
"The marriage is absolutely legal. We received a copy of the marriage certificate," Gary Finkelman of the Spring Valley Police Department, said in a statement.
Guardiola was jailed and his bail was set at $50,000.
