MINDEN, Nev. - A western Nevada man faces charges after authorities say he carried his mother out of a church when she arrived to stop his wedding.
The Record-Courier reports Justin Lew Harris of Gardnerville carried his 56-year-old mother out of the church Monday as she loudly objected to the ceremony.
Church volunteer Jim Jameson says Harris' wedding at the Carson Valley United Methodist Church was called off after the disruption. He didn't know what the mother's objections concerned.
The 35-year-old Harris faces misdemeanor disorderly conduct and coercion charges. He was released from jail on his own recognizance Wednesday.
East Fork Justice Tom Perkins urged Harris to treat family members with respect after the mother indicated she wanted contact with him. Perkins ordered Harris to return to court for a hearing Nov. 2.
No phone listing for Harris could be found.
