Wedding guest ends up in jail after reception brouhaha

NORTH OLMSTED, Ohio - A wedding guest ended up in jail after she allegedly refused to stop dancing with groom.

According to the North Olmsted police report, Brooke Burke was charged with assault and disorderly conduct intoxication after an incident at a wedding reception at St Clarence Church Pavilion on Saturday night.

An auxiliary police officer heard Burke yelling at two men in the parking lot after they took her keys to stop her from driving home claiming she was too intoxicated.

Earlier in the evening the bride asked Burke to stop slow dancing with her new husband. According to the report, Burke became upset, yelled at the bride and tried to hit her.

Witnesses reported seeing Burke, appearing to be heavily intoxicated, verbally attacking the bride at least twice in the evening.

While Burke waited for a cab to take her home, she approached the bride for a third time yelling at her and attempting to grab her. A witness attempted to restrain Burke and was pushed to the ground.

The auxiliary officer then attempted to restrain Burke by grabbing her arm, but she pushed and grabbed him by the uniform. When the officer told her to calm down she fell to the floor kicking and screaming, according to the police report.

The officer tried to restrain her again when Burke struck the officer in his face several times. Two auxiliary officers held Burke down while waiting for North Olmsted Police to arrive.

Burke was transported by North Olmsted Police and was later released to a sober party.

Burke is due in court April 10, 2012.
