Police Arrest Man Who Lived in Car For Honeymoon Endurance Test

February 18, 1992

LONGMONT, Colo. (AP) _ A man who last week settled into a car with his bride and another couple for a honeymoon endurance test was disqualified Monday after police arrested him on an outstanding warrant.

John E. Lyon III, his bride Rhonda and Sheryl and Vernon Plowman were participating in a contest sponsored by KQKS radio in Denver and the Twin Peaks Mall for a chance to win the $8,795 Nissan Sentra.

The two couples were married Friday and then jumped into the car. The couple who lasted the longest was to win the car.

Aurora police officers pulled Lyon out of the car inside the mall Sunday night and took him into custody on a warrant for failure to appear to answer assault and disorderly conduct charges. He was booked and released.

After Lyon was arrested, the Plowmans got the car.

The couples were given 12-minute breaks every three hours; otherwise, they remained in the car.
