Wedding bash ends in cuffs
Boston Herald ^ | 5/3/12 | Jessica Heslam

Posted on 05/03/2012 7:08:22 AM PDT by raccoonradio

A modern-day Romeo and Juliet are on their honey-moon trying to make good on their vows after barely surviving their North Shore wedding from hell, which ended in a bruising brawl and two busts — including the groom’s mother.

“They’re in love. They’re doing everything in their power to make it work,” busted mom Darlene DeIorio, 45, told the Herald last night though tears. “I’m going to be there for them no matter what. My heart is so broken. I’m sad for them.”

The Saturday night nuptials between Anthony DeIorio-Weiner and Nancy Guido at the Danversport Yacht Club ballroom — which featured more than 250 guests — erupted into mayhem after the groom’s two younger brothers were denied booze at the bar, according to a police report.

This service slight somehow incensed DeIorio-Weiner, 25, who punched a wall and began tearing apart the coatroom after someone from the bride’s side of the family told him to calm down.

When the bride’s brother approached DeIorio-Weiner, the groom punched him and the pair were soon tussling on the floor, police say.

Danvers cops showed up and found a surreal scene: Wedding guests yelling, screaming and rolling around on the ground in a pig pile. At one point, police said, the groom’s mother, Darlene, attacked the bride’s mom.

The two were separated and Darlene was escorted outside — only to return to the scene of the marital mayhem. This time, police said, she threw a chair across the room and began punching another woman.

Darlene’s version of the story is a bit different. It was all about disrespect, she said. According to her, the whole kerfuffle began when the bride’s mother began yelling at Darlene’s 70-year-old mother and waving her finger in her face.

Darlene insists she was only defending her mom and her family’s good name. How could that be assault? As the fighting escalated, Darlene claims she went to leave but was insulted by her ex-boyfriend’s galpal, who told her she was no lady.

Police again intervened, and after Darlene put up some stiff resistance, she was led away in cuffs.

On the way to the station, police said, Darlene turned her wrath on them and said some pretty hurtful things about one of the officer’s mothers.

“I could have done things differently or better,” said a repentant Darlene, who pleaded not guilty to disorderly conduct and resisting arrest in court Monday. “There should have been many arrested. The incident was unfair. It’s an embarrassment to the bride and groom.”

Meanwhile, her son Anthony and new daughter-in-law Nancy are off in the Dominican Republic, enjoying their honeymoon.

Or so Darlene hopes.

“I apologize,” she said last night. “I pray to God that everything works out for the best and I pray that love prevails. I really do. It was supposed to be two families becoming one.”

The DeIorios and the Guidos.

epic lulz.

Dude, I need you help in tracking down that great “Tomahawk chop” music that Howie was playing behind his send up of “Great Chieftess” Granny Warren the other day. Any idea what the name of that tune is, and who performed it?

Again, to use that song usually heard at weddings (or at least it used to be), The Bride Cuts the Cake:

The groom posts the bail, the groom posts the bail,
Hi ho de-merry-oh, the groom posts the bail

Darlene is now the hyper hyphenated “ Darlene DeIorio-Guido-Weiner” Or maybe just Guido-Weiner!

The first one that came up on a YouTube search sounds like what he used

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e3Z-11PxYKU

This one is from a home video at Turner Field, very short

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BIy2e-qx3aw

From Wikipedia (Atlanta Braves):
“During the Braves’ rise to prominence in the early 1990s, their long-standing ethnic nickname came under much closer scrutiny, even being protested in Minneapolis when the Braves visited the Twins for Game 1 of the 1991 World Series. The team was especially criticized for selling plastic and foam tomahawks, encouraging the so-called tomahawk chop and the accompanying war cry emitted by the fans. The war cry and tomahawk chop are similar, if not identical, to what Florida State University fans do at their games. Initially, the war chant music was played by the Braves’ organist, but in recent years, a recording of the FSU band has been used instead. This tradition can be traced back to the arrival of former Seminole Deion Sanders, who also played for the NFL’s Atlanta Falcons at the time (he would go on to play both sports simultaneously in San Francisco for one year).”

(I remember one player hit a HR, maybe a game winner,
against the Braves and playfully did a tomahawk chop
as he rounded the bases. The Braves left Boston 9 years before I was born but I believe they had a mascot Indian
named Chief Nock-a-homah (get it?)

Sounds like my relatives.

At a wedding few years back, my elderly grandmother got into a physical altercation with another geezer - over who was going to take home a floral centerpiece.

Fur and flowers and wigs and Italian curses were flying.

Who knew two 90+ year old women could throw down like that?

After a friend’s wedding reception, a guy in a wheelchair got into fistfight with some other guy over God-knows-what. It was pretty amusing. I felt bad for the non-wheelchair guy. If you fight back, you beat up a crippled guy. If you don’t, you got your ass kicked by a crippled guy. There’s just no way to win.

I remember, certain “Native-American””activists” made a big deal of this non-issue. One of them was interviewed by Dennis Praeger. He asked Mr. Praeger, how he would feel if there was a team called the Texas Jewboys? Praeger replied that he would be overjoyed because finally after 5000 yrs someone would be cheering for us. I was ROTFLMAO!

Ah, that’s good! (Of course Kinky Friedman’s band has that very name, a spoof on the name of Bob Wills and the Texas
Playboys, I believe). Speaking of team names, while some
teams have raccoons as mascots (as does the NFL’s Tenn. Titans) I don’t think there are
any teams named the Raccoons—perhaps because they’re afraid the chants would be “Go Coons Go”...

They’ll be lucky to get the small function room at Maggio’s after this fiasco. Or maybe The Cove. You have to have spent time in “Severe” to know what I’m talking about.

IMHO beating a Weiner at a wedding reception is in exceedingly bad taste.

I knew this had to be an Italian wedding!!

I’m Scots-German and married into an Italian family, my brother too.

A few similar things happened before my wedding to my Italian — fighting, screaming, yelling, name-calling, threats, accusations going back generations!! All ages were involved from 90 on down!! — 10 minutes later they acted if nothing had happened and sat down and ate!!

I asked my husband about the fighting and he said “what fighting?”

Yeah a couple Revere places were gangster faves and I think
the owner of one of them got shot by Martorano and Whitey.
To be exact:

http://bostonhitman.com/Richard%20Castucci.htm
>>
This photo was taken in 1950, when Castucci, right, was 21. He later became a bookie and the owner of the Ebb Tide in Revere, and in 1976, now-imprisoned FBI agent Zip Connolly told Whitey that Castucci had become an FBI informant and had told the feds the whereabouts of fugitive Winter Hill gangster Joe MacDonald. Whitey was so angry he decided to start betting football games with Castucci. As long as Whitey was ahead, Castucci lived. Finally, Whitey went into the red, and Castucci went into the trunk of his Cadillac after being shot in the head.

Gee, I wonder if alcohol might have contributed to the extracurricular festivities?

I knew a guy who started a fistfight at his own wedding. Yes, he liked to drink a little.

At my wedding, I want everyone to be naked and rolling around in a pig pile.

And rutting. I want an orgy at my wedding.

Well, more of an orgy-buffet. First come, first served.

We had a lot of the same drama in our family. I remember, as a kid, the near-fights and the crazy drunken arguments and the plates being thrown.

Italians.

In my neck of the woods we got a minor league team, the Hudson Vly Renegades, their mascot happens to be a raccoon.

Interesting. My lovely has similar ancestory, plus she has some of the Blarney and a couple of her great-grandparents came over from Sweden. So I deal with her Irish temper and the Nordic warrior princess thing ;)

Yup, and I used to have one of their T shirts—the raccoon over a pair of crossed bats. I was actually in the gift shop of a NY-Penn League team in Burlington VT and they had the shirt (this was yrs ago)
