Suspect arrested at own wedding

A man described by Utah authorities as Salt Lake County's Public Enemy No. 1 was arrested when he came into a courthouse to get married.

Uintah County Sheriff's Lt. John Laursen said someone recognized Frank Paul Reyos, 27, when he arrived Tuesday at Ute Tribal Court in Fort Duchesne with the intent to marry a young woman, the Salt Lake Tribune reported Thursday.

Reyos, who is wanted on a no-bail fugitive warrant for aggravated robbery by the Salt Lake County Metro Gang Unit, was arrested without incident and taken to a jail in Vernal, Utah.

The suspect, who police say is linked to violent street gangs in the Salt Lake City area, has previous arrests for aggravated assault, vehicle theft, robbery and multiple theft charges.

Police said he was recognized due to his many facial tattoos, including a spiderweb on his forehead.
