MI Man Arrested On His Way to Marry Paris Hilton

7/2/11 – A Michigan man arrested in Dane County says he was on his way to California to marry heiress Paris Hilton. Ryan Grunewald was picked up after he tried to panhandle cash from strangers at a truck stop in the town of Burke. He told authorities Hilton had sent his 40 thousand dollars to buy the truck he was driving, though it proved to be stolen. When he was arrested, Grunewald told deputies he and Hilton had fallen in love “telepathically.” He explained he had not actually stolen the truck he was driving because the keys were in it when he took it. He said he was borrowing it. Grunewald’s record shows he has been arrested in nine states before this visit to the Dane County Jail.
