Groom Mark Williams, 33, is accused of touching the waitress several times during his wedding aboard a Gateway Clipper cruise down Pittsburgh's Monongahela River on Sunday, a criminal complaint says.
The 19-year-old woman, who is pregnant, said Williams tried to pour liquor down her throat and force her to have shots with him….
The woman got uncomfortable and called her boyfriend, 20-year-old Tyler Smith, to come pick her up at the end of the cruise.
When Smith arrived about 1am on Monday, he confronted Williams and they started to trade punches — all while the shocked bride Edyta Williams watched, KDKA reported.
That's when Williams' brother David and groomsman Brian Taylor jumped into the altercation. David Williams, a 35-year-old Pennsylvania State trooper, ignored police orders to back down and eventually assaulted two Pittsburgh police officers who were called to the scene, authorities said. The groom, his brother and Taylor were all hauled to Allegheny County Jail.
The bride, meanwhile, just looked on in horror as this all unfolded.
