KINGSTON TWP. — A Plains Township man was arrested minutes after he was married Friday morning by a district judge on charges he terrorized his child’s mother.

Ashley police arrested Delroy Toomer, 24, last known address as Henry Street, at the office of District Judge Paul Roberts in Kingston. Roberts performed the marriage ceremony between Toomer and Angelic Yard.

Police waited until the end of the ceremony to arrest Toomer.

An arrest warrant was issued for Toomer on July 8 based on allegations by Amber Miller, of Cemetery Street, Ashley.

Miller told Ashley police Toomer and two other men had drove past her house on July 7, and Toomer threatened to kill her and everyone inside the residence, according to the criminal complaint.

Miller also claimed Toomer and the two men kicked the door and broke a window.

Toomer was arraigned by District Judge James Tupper in Kingston Township on charges of terroristic threats, criminal mischief, harassment, disorderly conduct, loitering and prowling at night, simple assault and defiant trespass. He was jailed at the Luzerne County Correctional Facility for lack of $10,000 bail.

Toomer’s parents said a restraining order Miller had obtained against Toomer was dismissed on Thursday.
