An Autauga County woman was charged Tuesday with misdemeanor disorderly conduct after offering to perform a same-sex marriage inside the probate judge’s office.

Anne Susan Diprizio, 44, of Prattville was charged with disorderly conduct, said Dave Hill, chief deputy of the Autauga County Sheriff’s Office. She later was released from Autauga Metro Jail on $1,000 bond.

Courthouse records show she doesn’t have a lawyer.

Deputies were called to the probate office, one block from the courthouse, about 10:30 a.m. CT when Probate Judge Al Booth asked for assistance, Hill said.

“Judge Booth said there was a lady in the office who wouldn’t leave when he asked her to leave,” Hill said.
