Wedding Disaster: Drunken Guest Sparks Brawl, Hits Officer And Gets Arrested (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

We've all heard stories of (and likely met) a belligerent wedding guest, but one in particular is seriously making us question open bars.

Brooke Burke, a 36-year-old Ohio wedding guest, was charged with assault and disorderly conduct after she got out of hand on the dance floor at one couple's wedding reception in North Olmsted, Ohio on Saturday.

According to local police, the brawl began when the bride asked Burke (no relation to "Dancing with the Stars" host Brooke Burke) to stop slow-dancing with her groom. The situation escalated when Burke -- who was allegedly intoxicated -- refused to stop and started yelling at the bride and attempting to hit her, according to reports.

Off-duty police officer Dan Kuak, who was working security at the reception, tried to grab and restrain Burke, but she ended up on the floor "kicking and screaming," according to The Morning Journal. Burke struck the officer in the face several times before she was finally arrested.

Burke, who is reportedly married to the groom's brother, was later released.
