Sky News:– A Texas groom who robbed a bank a day before his wedding to pay for the rings and venue has been arrested, police have said.

Heath Bumpous robbed the Citizens State Bank in Groveton on Friday morning, Trinity County Sheriff Woody Wallace said on Facebook Live.

The 36-year-old threatened a bank cashier and said he had a gun before demanding cash.

Bumpous told the employee that he was getting married and needed the money for the wedding the following day.

He then left with the stolen cash and drove down dirt and forest service roads when he received a call from his fiancee, who he was due to wed on Saturday.

His fiancee said she saw surveillance video stills of her husband-to-be robbing the bank that police had posted on Facebook.
