TGIS: Thank God It's Schadenfreude! (313)

This week's joy in the misfortune of others comes courtesy of the Associated Press (from Monday, March 21; link good at time of posting):
Police say a bride was arrested at her own wedding reception near Phoenix after she kicked a police officer.


Officers responding to a call found a large brawl in the backyard of the home and told everyone to stop fighting. But the commotion continued, and police officers pepper-sprayed the crowd. [Police spokesman Hugh] White says people then got angry and aggressive toward the officers and that [bride Angela] Davito charged a partygoer.

He says Davito then kicked an officer and was arrested on charges of assault and obstructing governmental operations.

Given how emotional weddings are, to say nothing how much alcohol is consumed, I suppose it should come as no surprise that so many people get arrested in connection with weddings. It is funny, however, to think of the bride being booked in her wedding dress. Thanks for the amusing entry.
