Arizona bride arrested at wedding reception

Police say a bride was arrested at her own wedding reception near Phoenix after she kicked a police officer.

Police spokesman Hugh White said Monday that officers had to restrain 28-year-old Angela Davito around 9:30 p.m. Saturday after she became disorderly at the suburban Gilbert home where her reception was held.

Officers responding to a call found a large brawl in the backyard of the home and told everyone to stop fighting. But the commotion continued, and police officers pepper-sprayed the crowd. White says people then got angry and aggressive toward the officers and that Davito charged a partygoer.

He says Davito then kicked an officer and was arrested on charges of assault and obstructing governmental operations. It's unclear whether she has an attorney.
