Police say a bride was arrested at her own wedding reception in Gilbert after she kicked a police officer.

Gilbert police spokesman Hugh White said Monday that officers had to restrain 28-year-old Angela Davito around 9:30 p.m. Saturday after she became disorderly at the home where her reception was held.

Officers responding to a call found a large brawl in the backyard of the home and told everyone to stop fighting.

But the commotion continued, and officers pepper sprayed the crowd. White says people then got angry and aggressive toward the officers and that Davito charged a partygoer.

He says Davito then kicked an officer and was arrested on charges of assault and obstructing governmental operations.

It's unclear whether Davito has an attorney.
