Wild Wedding in Woodbury
One man arrested on suspicion of assault, his brother found drunk, shoeless, planning to sleep outside, according to police reports.
Woodbury police were called about two incidents involving people who attended a June 23 wedding in Woodbury.
One man was arrested on suspicion of assault, and officers later found his brother, who apparently planned to sleep outside that night, hiding in the bushes at US Bank.
According to police reports:
Officers were called on a report of a fight at the Sheraton Hotel and found an intoxicated man who had pushed and choked his stepfather.
The assault ended only after his mother and 10-year-old cousin intervened and pleaded with him to stop. He was booked at the Washington County Jail.
Police were later called about a verbal argument near the former Blockbuster location. Officers spoke with people in the area, who said there was no argument but a man was yelling into his cell phone.
Police got a description of the man and later saw him running southbound across Valley Creek Road into the U.S. Bank parking lot.
Officers learned he was at a wedding reception at Central Park, got into a dispute with family members and planned to sleep outside. He was wearing a hooded sweatshirt, dress pants and no shoes.
Police found him hiding in some bushes near the bank and discovered that it was his brother who had been arrested earlier at the Sheraton.
The two men are from Wisconsin.
