Wedding brawl ends in arrest
By Maria J. Flora firstname.lastname@example.org
A wedding day brawl ended in the groom being hauled to jail still kicking, police said. Police were twice called to the Ramada Limited where the arguing couple was spending their wedding night last week, according to court records.
Angela Tripp was still in her wedding dress when police arrived, Crawfordsville Police Lt. Harvey Barton said in a probable cause affidavit. Her husband Travis R. Lee, 30, was wearing jeans and offered their ripped-in-half marriage license as identification, Barton said.
Angelas neck was red and she told police Travis hit and choked her after, but she would not sign a statement, according to court records.
The couple visited a friends house after their wedding, but Travis left the house, Barton said. Angela went drinking at two downtown bars and later found Travis at the friends house, according to court records.
Barton said Lee punched him in the face then fought the six officers who tried to subdue him. Lee refused to walk and had to be carried to the squad car, where he continued to fight, according to court records. Police said they had to drag him from the car into the jail.
Barton reported that in all, Travis: hit and spit on Barton, kicked Crawfordsville Police Corporal Neil Barclays inner thigh, kicked Officer David Longs chest and fought Montgomery County Officers Grant Snyder and Chad Kendricks.
Travis is charged in Montgomery County Superior Court with: battery on a law enforcement officer, battery by bodily waste, resisting law enforcement and two counts of resisting law enforcement, causing injury.
Flashback of the Clinton Weddding?
Ramada Limited? Beware of weddings at limited service economy hotels.
What a lovely couple.
I wouldn't start making plans for eating the leftover cake at their first anniversary...
"battery by bodily waste" . . . . .
Now there's a cute little legal euphenism for spitting.
Well, this couple can look forward to a bright, happy future together.

Wow. I guess the commercials ARE true. Only SMART people stay at Holiday Inn Express hotels, LOL!
I wonder where they plan to honeymoon?
Mmmmhmmm. Well, let's open up the official FR book, and set the over/under on the marriage at...eight months. Takers?
"Angela's neck was red. . ."
Understatement of the year.
Let's just hope they don't procreate!
Probably where she met the groom.
My guess is, it may already be too late...
My Hispanic in-laws tell me that a wedding is considered to be pretty dull unless somebody gets arrested or shot.
