Arizona Bride Arrested at Her Wedding Reception

By Stephanie Rabiner, Esq. on March 24, 2011 7:10 AM

Weddings are supposed to be joyous affairs--not fighting affairs.

Angela Davito and her new husband clearly didn't get the memo. Upset that uninvited guests were dancing provocatively with his new bride, the groom initiated an all out rumble during the Arizona couple's reception.

Not only does this story involve pepper spray, a kick to the groin, and a hysterical woman, it includes a tale of an Arizona bride fighting with a pregnant guest.

During her backyard wedding reception, Angela Davito was getting down and dirty with some men who were not her husband. Unhappy about the situation, the groom and his friends began an argument.

When cops arrived at the scene, a woman was outside screaming about people killing one another, reports The Arizona Republic. Officers found thirty people fighting on the makeshift dance floor.

The Arizona bride was nowhere to be seen, but police tried to stop the chaos. One officer ordered the group to stop, and when they refused, he began to shoot pepper spray, details KSAZ.

When police finally found Angela Davito, she was engaged in a screaming match with a pregnant guest. She was clad in a flouncy wedding dress and cowboy boots, according to the paper. Classy.

Now here comes the best part. When an officer tried to stop the argument, Davito struggled, eventually kicking him in the groin.

Angela Davito is to be charged with assault and obstructing police.

Chances are, if she has no record, the case will be pled out for a sentence of probation and/or community service. First time assaults, especially when they occur in emotional situations and mass chaos, are not usually prosecuted for jail time.
