Combative groom TASERed during reception


The Associated Press

PORT CHESTER, N.Y. — Police used a stun gun to subdue two people at a wedding reception after a ruckus erupted over the band.

The bride, the groom and the couple’s daughter were arrested at Saturday’s Westchester County event. Police subdued the groom and the daughter.

Port Chester Police Lt. James Ladeairous says department guidelines allows officers to use a Taser stun gun when they can’t otherwise get control of a suspect.

The 21-year-old daughter says she and her father were left with bruises. Both were arrested on misdemeanor charges, while the bride faces a felony criminal mischief charge. The daughter says the couple was legally married 22 years ago but had a long-delayed church wedding Saturday.
