Police: Drunken Wedding Crashers Refused to Leave

DUNEDIN, Fla. (AP) — Police say two men crashed a couple’s wedding reception after showing up drunk and refusing to leave.

News outlets report investigators say 33-year-old Patrick McAllister of Tierre Verde and 34-year-old Joshua Willard of St. Petersburg didn’t know the bride or groom and appeared to be drunk when they walked in on the Dunedin event.

Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office Sgt. Spencer Gross says the men were asked to leave but refused to do so, shoving guests and even threatening the bride.

Deputies say McAllister took a guest’s glasses, throwing them into the road.

Both men left and went to a bar, where authorities say they caused a scene by making threats and cursing. Both were arrested on charges of disorderly intoxication and resisting an officer.

It’s unclear if they have attorneys.
