BREAKING: Jiminez arrested again for protesting gay marriage

Chandler and Jiminez hug before Jiminez’s arrest at 4:30 this afternoon

Mark Jiminez was arrested for criminal trespassing at the County Records Building after he refused to leave the building.

Jiminez handcuffed himself to rope in the waiting line on the second floor of the County Records Building in protest of four Dallas same-sex couples denied marriage licenses.

Jiminez and Beau Chandler went back to the County Records Building this afternoon after their court hearings this morning. The two were arrested for criminal trespassing July 5 after refusing to leave the records building without a marriage license.

Chandler didn’t handcuff himself in order to get the bail money in case Jiminez is arrested.

Sheriff’s deputies arrested Jiminez and escorted him out of the building when it closed at 4:30 p.m.
