Getting arrested is probably a bad wedding reception activity.   (Shutterstock)

(Newser) – When you're being carted off to jail while half your guests are wiping pepper spray out of their eyes, it's safe to say your wedding reception could have gone better. Such is the tale of 28-year-old Angela Davito: Police were called to her wedding reception Saturday after a large brawl broke out, with attendees telling them that people were "killing each other," My Fox Phoenix reports.

When they arrived, police fired pepper spray into the crowd, which somehow failed to diffuse the situation. Instead, the guests became angry and rushed police, who called for backup. More officers and firefighters arrived, and order was briefly restored—until the blushing bride charged another guest. When police restrained her, she allegedly kicked an officer, and was promptly arrested. Charges of assault and obstructing governmental operations are pending.

The wedding is just a ceremony. No guarantee it will include a level of class. You can put a little wedding dress on a rat and dress up a hundred other rodents to look nice. Once you put them all together in one room with cheese and alcohol all you will get is Chaos. I wonder who caught the bouquet? Hugo Chavez daughter?

Now that's what I call a wedding reception; sure wish I could have been there (as a bystander).
