Minister Arrested While Marrying Gays

A minister was charged with misdemeanor disorderly conduct Tuesday after she offered to perform a same-sex marriage inside of an Alabama probate judge’s office a day after nuptials for gays began in the state. Anne Susan Diprizio is being held on $1,000 bond after she refused to leave an Autauga County probate office, where Courtney Cannon and Morgan Plunkett had received a marriage license. Diprizio offered to conduct the ceremony inside the office but was eventually handcuffed and led across the street to a local jail.
