Reality stars of the hit TV show “My Big Fat American Gypsy Wedding” were arrested in High Point after they were accused of stealing from a bride at her wedding.
Elvis Allen Boswell, 24, and Eden Brianna Boswell, 22, both of Princeton, W.Va., face felony larceny charges for stealing honeymoon cash and wedding rings from a wedding the couple was attending at Castle McCulloch on Kivett Drive Sunday.
When officers arrived, the bride’s mother told them that Eden Boswell had stolen the purse that contained $1,000 of honeymoon cash along with the bride and groom’s wedding rings, according to a police report.
Boswell took the purse to her truck where her husband Elvis Boswell was waiting outside, police said, and hid it in the back of the truck before accidentally locking themselves out of the truck when family members went out to confront them.
“The bride and some family members followed them out to the truck,” said Capt. Mike Kirk of the High Point Police Department. “They (the Boswells) got out of the car and locked themselves out of the truck with the keys still in it.”
The couple agreed to let officers search the truck if they could get into it, police said. Officers had no trouble getting the truck open and recovered the rings and cash totalling $5,800 out of the $6,100 reported stolen. Some of the cash was missing but the rest of it was found in Elvis Boswell’s front pockets, Kirk said.
Elvis and Eden Boswell made their first appearance on the TV show “My Big Fat American Gypsy Wedding” in Season 2, one that attracted over one million viewers. During the season, the couple were engaged for a second time when Elvis presents Eden with a grey sports car. He told the television crew that he could afford it because he is: self made, the words tattooed on the back of his eyelids.
Both are detained in the Guilford County Jail in High Point under $6,100 secured bonds. Their next court date is set for July 28.
The bride and groom married Sunday despite the incident, Kirk said, and High Point Police stayed the remainder of the wedding to make sure nothing else happened.
