New England bride hitchhikes to wedding after limo fails her

BROOKLINE, N.H. — After waiting 11 years to marry her groom, a flat tire wasn't going to stop a determined New Hampshire bride from walking down the aisle on her special day.

With her limo rendered inoperable along an infrequently traveled road in Brookline, Angelique Arsenault stuck out her thumb and hitchhiked to the wedding venue in nearby Milford on Saturday.

Arsenault says her bridal party just laughed after receiving word of the flat tire from their driver.

With confidence fueled by champagne, Arsenault in her white dress was able to flag down a passing motorist who gladly helped get her to the altar — albeit 30 minutes late.

Despite the small hiccup, Arsenault says the rest of her wedding was "amazing" and she now has a story her family will remember forever.

Authorities: Man broke into Ohio jail for protection

HAMILTON, Ohio — Police say a 23-year-old man looking for protection ran into an Ohio jail and became trapped in the facility.

Authorities say Chad Saylor breached the Butler County Resolutions facility in Hamilton on Saturday by climbing a pipe and becoming trapped in the rear of the facility. Police say he then called 911, saying people were after him with weapons and trying to kill him and he needed to get to safety.

The breach came days after an inmate walked away from the Butler County Jail and was found a day later.


Saylor had active warrants and was taken into custody. He wasn't seriously injured.

A message seeking comment was left with his attorney.
