PostSubject: Officer Darren Wilson gets married to fellow Ferguson cop as grand jury decision on Michael Brown shooting looms    Mon Nov 24, 2014 10:48 am

The 28-year-old officer, expected to resign from the suburban St. Louis police department in light of the August shooting of the unarmed teen, married fellow Ferguson police Officer Barbara Spradling on Oct. 24. Wilson, who has been in hiding since the shooting, also has met with at least five TV anchors about a tell-all interview.

He said “I do” while protests raged.

Amid an uncertain future and an impending grand jury decision, Ferguson police Officer Darren Wilson married his girlfriend, fellow Ferguson cop Barbara Spradling, last month.

The 28-year-old, awaiting news on whether he will stand trial for fatally shooting unarmed black teen Michael Brown in August, tied the knot with his 37-year-old colleague Spradling, a 10-year veteran of the suburban St. Louis police force, on Oct. 24.

The couple, who share a home in nearby Crestwood, Mo., applied for a license last month in Clayton and were married in Oakland, Mo., by a municipal judge.

One of the witnesses to the union was Greg Kloeppel, one of Wilson’s attorneys.

Wilson was previously married, but divorced Ashley Brown in November 2013, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

There was no fanfare when Wilson and Spradling visited the deeds office, located within the Department of Revenue on the fourth floor of the Lawrence K. Roos County Government Building in Clayton, to secure the marriage paper.

"Business as usual," Martina Price, a spokeswoman for the St. Louis County Department of Revenue, told the Daily News. "People come in and we issue a license."

The city has since taken precautions to safeguard property as a decision in the case nears. The entrance to the building is now partially barricaded by orange and white plastic barriers, forcing visitors to circle around to enter the building. The brown brick building sits across the street from the Justice Center, where a media circus sits outside and awaits the looming grand jury decision.

Wilson, who has not been seen in public since the midday Aug. 9 shooting, and Spradling have disappeared from their shared home after Wilson was identified as the shooter. Brown, 18, was unarmed when he was shot six times during a confrontation that remains in dispute.

A grand jury, which convened Aug. 20, is expected to make a decision any day on whether to indict Wilson in the killing.

The news of the marriage comes shortly after a CNN report that the reclusive Wilson has secretly met with at least five high-profile TV anchors in anticipation of a tell-all interview.

The cop and a rep have met with NBC’s Matt Lauer, George Stephanopoulos of ABC, Scott Pelley from CBS and Anderson Cooper and Don Lemon from CNN.

The latter two confirmed the meetings on Twitter, though Cooper said Wilson chose not to do a sit-down with him.

Such pre-interviews are standard operating procedure for big network gets, according to CNN. It’s unclear when or where these meetings took place, and it’s unclear where Wilson has spent his time awaiting the grand jury decision.

Wilson is expected to resign from the Ferguson police choice, whether he’s charged or not. Spradling has not publicly made a decision on her future, and it’s unclear whether she has been working since the shooting.

So complete has Wilson’s vanishing act been, though, that he has failed to show up in court to testify in cases, leading in at least one instance to the dismissal of felony drug charges against a suspect.

He’s been on paid administrative leave during the investigation into the officer-involved killing.
