An American groom has been arrested at his wedding reception after a waitress claimed he was touching her inappropriately.
TV station WTAE reported that the 19-year-old waitress felt uncomfortable and tried to avoid the groom, identified as 33-year-old Mark Williams, after he tried to force her to drink shots.
"The groom was so drunk. He came over and started rubbing my head and put his hand on my body, just touchy-feely," the waitress said.
When the waitress' boyfriend Brian Taylor came to pick her up, he got in a fight with the groom.
"I'm not clear if he (Taylor) was trying to break it up, or if he was trying to participate in the fight, but whatever happened, his hand went through a window of a parked car, which caused blood to go all over the place," Public Safety spokeswoman Sonya Toler was quoted as saying.
According to WTAE, the pair began to fight again when they were questioned by police and were soon joined by the groom's brother David Williams.

All three were then arrested while the bride looked on.
"She was very understanding. She didn't at all argue with anybody," the waitress told WTAE.
"She was probably shocked and in tears that this happened on her day."
