3 Arrested At Wedding After Groom Allegedly Hits On Pregnant Reception Worker, Gets Into Fight
Hot On CBS Pittsburgh
STATION SQUARE (KDKA)- Three men were arrested after a big fight in Station Square early Monday morning.
Pittsburgh Police Spokeswoman Sonya Toler said a fight involving people from a wedding party broke out at 12:55 a.m. on Monday.
Police were called to the Gateway Clipper dock area at Station Square. When police arrived, they found two men covered in blood.
A woman who works for the Gateway Clipper told police the groom of the wedding party, Mark Williams, 33, was being “touchy feely” with her, while she was working nearby. She reportedly told her boyfriend the groom also tried to pour alcohol down her throat, even though she told him she was pregnant.
Police say she called her boyfriend, Tyler Smith, 20, so he could come pick her up.
At that time, Smith allegedly confronted Williams about his actions and a physical altercation began.
Police say Williams’ brother, David Williams, 35, eventually got involved and became aggressive with police.
A fourth man, Brian Taylor, 31, punched his hand through the front passenger window of a car nearby. He was taken to UPMC Mercy Hospital for treatment.
Sources tell KDKA that Brian Taylor is a member of the Stowe Rocks School Board. A police report says when Taylor was taken into custody, he yelled that he was HIV positive, as he tried to resist arrest.
Mark Williams, David Williams and Taylor were arrested and taken to the Allegheny County Jail.
David Williams is a Pennsylvania State Police trooper. He was off-duty at the time of the incident, but police said they’re conducting an internal investigation.
He is facing charges of aggravated assault, resisting arrest and obstructing law enforcement.
“He ignores various commands from police to stay back,” said Pittsburgh Police Spokesperson Sonya Toler. “He ends up getting arrested.”
Williams is described as jumping into the tail end of the brawl.
All three men have since been released from jail.
