A concrete contractor in Utah was arrested Wednesday for allegedly attempting to firebomb a gay marriage ceremony in his city.
Kurt Schleierweis, 37, was charged with misdemeanor damage to property and was booked into the Logan County Jail on $100,000 bail.
The incident occurred in the town of Provo, Utah, about 50 miles southeast of Salt Lake City, said Provo Police Chief Rick Smith.
The event was supposed to be held at the Provo City Hall on June 17, Smith said.
Schleierwes Facebook page said he had been employed as a concrete contractor for about four years.
The Facebook page also posted a photo of the incident with a caption that read, “My day is coming!”
He is scheduled to appear in court June 29.
Schneierws attorney did not immediately return a message seeking comment.
Utah’s Constitution bars discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender identity.
The U.S. Supreme Court has ruled that such laws do not violate the Constitution’s guarantee of equal protection under the law.
The state’s ban on gay marriage was struck down by the Utah Supreme Court last year.
The U.K.’s High Court upheld the ruling last month.
Utah, the second-most populous U.H.S., has a population of roughly 2.7 million people.
It is the second most conservative state in the nation, according to the U.N. Human Development Index.
