(Newser) – Most brides pose for pictures between their wedding ceremony and reception ... but not like this. A Michigan woman’s day of wedded bliss was interrupted by a brief stint in the county jail, after police got a tip that the bride would be traveling back to the state for her wedding; they arrested her on a 2009 felony identity theft warrant on Saturday, the Smoking Gun reports. But Tammy Hinton was freed on bond and picked up by her new hubby within about 30 minutes; an official says they presumably then went to their reception.

Where Hinton, 53, didn't later go was back to court. She was scheduled to appear at 1pm yesterday for her arraignment, but skipped out, reports the Jackson Citizen Patriot.
