Speaker of the House John Boehner may have something new to cry about -- his daughter's impending marriage.

Lindsay Boehner, who lives in Hollywood, Florida, is engaged to Jamaica-born Dominic Lakhan, and records show they're set to tie the knot May 5, reports New York Daily News.

Lakhan was pulled over in 2006 for a traffic violation, and a Pembroke Pines, FL. police officer found four grams of marijuana in his ashtray and "observed in plain view a 16 oz. Natural Light beer can opened in the driver door," according to a police report. "Officer also detected the odor of burnt cannabis emitting from the interior of the vehicle."

Lakhan, 38, admitted to possessing the marijuana “for personal use” and was charged with misdemeanor possession. Records also show Lakhan was charged with possession of an open container of alcohol while driving back in 2003.

Republican House Speaker John Boehner is a social conservative, widely known to be a religious Catholic and firmly against marijuana legalization. The Ohio politician is also considered to be the decider of the fate of an immigration reform bill moving through the House.
