Authorities say relatives at the church flailed their arms at Thompson as he spun his Jeep in a "doughnut."

He told the officer he was supposed to be married at 7 p.m.

Thompson told police he had just been released from jail, and they took him back there. The Times says Thompson didn't make the wedding.

The Associated Press couldn't contact Thompson Tuesday because his phone number wasn't published.
