(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.

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.
