Ariz. bride arrested at reception gets probation

An Arizona bride arrested at her own wedding reception after kicking a police officer will not have to serve time behind bars.

A judge sentenced 28-year-old Angela Davito on Thursday to six months of probation and four hours of community service for her conviction on a charge of attempted aggravated assault.

Police say officers had to restrain Davito on March 20 after she became disorderly at the suburban Phoenix home where her wedding 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 officers pepper-sprayed the crowd.

The crowd got angry and aggressive toward the officers, and police say Davito charged a partygoer and kicked an officer.
