(Newser) – A Houston man spent his wedding night in jail after he was caught driving from his wedding reception under the influence, the Houston Chronicle reports. The 26-year-old groom was nabbed during a local DUI crackdown, charged the next day with driving while intoxicated and freed on $500 bail. The bride was also briefly detained. The groom's attorney said the cops exhibited a lack of discretion.
