While purchasing a cheeseburger, I became the luckiest girl in GR. A tour manager for Maroon 5 approached me and upgraded me to the front row. Yes, I felt Adam Levine's sweat, and I'm going to keep the confetti in my hair for as long as possible. -Hughet

A Valparaiso, IN man was apparently in a hurry to head to the altar Saturday night, but he didn't quite make it. Instead, he landed in jail.
Timothy N. Thompson, 23, of Valparaiso, was supposed to be married in a 7 p.m. ceremony. Instead, Thompson was arrested for resisting law enforcement, criminal recklessness and reckless driving. He was also cited for speeding and improper passing.

According to police, an officer spotted Thompson about 6:30 p.m. Saturday speeding north in the center lane of Willowcreek Road. The officer estimated Thompson was driving 100 mph.
Thompson allegedly continued to drive erratically, switching lanes abruptly and, according to the report, nearly wrecking.
When he stopped, Thompson told police he was late for his wedding and estimated he was doing "about 90" mph. He also told police he had his emergency flashers on and was sounding his horn to alert drivers.
When an officer walked away from Thompson's vehicle, Thompson reentered his vehicle and drove toward the entrance of the church, where he was stopped by police again.
Thompson, who also told police he had just been released from jail that day, didn't make his wedding. He was transported to Porter County Jail and held without bond.
