Police officer weds couple after weather closes courthouse

KALAMAZOO, Mich. (AP) — A Michigan couple will never forget the guy who married them: He was carrying a gun.

Dean Lauer and Carrie Stull were married Friday at the Kalamazoo Department of Public Safety after the county courthouse was closed due to extreme weather.

Kalamazoo Officer Joe Paul is certified to perform marriages in Michigan. So he married the couple in the chief’s conference room before the start of his afternoon shift.

In a statement, the police department says it’s pleased to solve another crisis.
