(Newser) – After a whirlwind wedding, a Florida couple was whisked away to a romantic honeymoon—behind bars. Kymberely Frederick, 30, and Daniel Richards, 34, were arrested Tuesday for alleged child neglect: They'd left their one-, two-, and three-year-old children at home alone while they were tying the knot, police say. The parents—who kindly left a note for two older children who were in school—say that just after leaving for the courthouse wedding, they called a neighbor to ask her to babysit, the Orlando Sentinel reports.

That neighbor, who had let the couple use her car to go to the courthouse, called the cops upon realizing the kids were by themselves. Apparently, they were fine when police turned up: Two were in cribs and one in bed.
