It's been more worse than better for the Wielechowskis since they exchanged wedding vows a year ago. "This whole thing is ridiculous and I'm sorry," Christa Wielechowski, 26, told a judge Tuesday during a hearing on a wedding night brawl in a Ross hotel. "I was in jail in my wedding gown after being beaten and humiliated. I'm all over the world in the news. I think that is punishment enough." Allegheny County Common Pleas Judge John A. Zottola apparently didn't think so. He sentenced her to 180 days of house arrest and fined her $600 for her no-contest pleas to six summary charges of harassment and criminal mischief. Wielechowski and her husband, Dr. David Wielechowski, 33, were accused of fighting with others at the Holiday Inn on McKnight Road following their wedding reception April 27, 2008. David Wielechowski was permitted yesterday to enter the county's Accelerated Rehabilitative Disposition program ï¿½ a probationary program for first-time offenders whose records can be expunged upon completion. As part of the deal, Wielechowski, a dentist, will perform free dental work for underprivileged children. The Shaler couple were minutes away from starting a jury trial when they decided to take a deal offered by the prosecution that dropped more serious charges. "You don't engage in that kind of conduct in your wedding dress unless alcohol is involved," Deputy District Attorney Laura Ditka said. "With Dr. Wielechowski performing the free dental work, at least some good will come of this." Michael Worgul, Christa Wielechowski's attorney, said she maintains her innocence. "This has been a very emotionally taxing case for both Mr. and Mrs. Wielechowski," Worgul said. "Her face was plastered all over the media on several different continents." Police say the couple fought with people who attended another wedding at the Holiday Inn.

Please don't tell me the fight was over the bouquet...
What? Brawling at your wedding is a time honored tradition in my trailer court.
Could this be one of Mike's relatives?
I looked at the pics. She is rather cute for doing trailer trash stuff. Me thinks we will be hearing from them again.
Wow a 180 day - second honeymoon!
Bridezilla looks plastered even when allegedly sobered up. Nice shiner on the Doc.

He kicked her in the mid section with a karate chop and the brawl started when another couple tried to help her and restrain him. She turned on the “good Samaritans”.
I can’t imagine what their home life is like.
