A US man faces charges after authorities said he carried his mother out of a church when she arrived to stop his wedding.
The Record-Courier reports Justin Lew Harris, of Gardnerville, Nevada, carried his 56-year-old mother out of the church as she loudly objected to the ceremony.
Church volunteer Jim Jameson said Harris' wedding at the Carson Valley United Methodist Church was called off after the disruption. He did not know what the mother's objections concerned.
The 35-year-old Harris faces misdemeanour disorderly conduct and coercion charges.
Justice Tom Perkins urged Harris to treat family members with respect after the mother indicated she wanted contact with him. Mr Perkins ordered Harris to return to court for a hearing on November 2.
