When you are planning a wedding you will need to find the perfect dress, a beautiful venue, professional photographer and entertainment for the reception. Those are just for starters and then comes the guest list.

Your 100 or so guests are going to be your family members, closest friends and the people that love you most. Would you ever think that, by the end of the night, you'd have to tackle one of these guests and take a rifle from him? This happened in Upstate New York just this week.

On Saturday September 16th, according to a press release, New York State Police responded to a call regarding a person with a weapon. When officers arrived they witnessed a group of individuals restraining someone.

Following an investigation New York State Troopers concluded that the suspect became intoxicated while attending a wedding. During the reception the suspect allegedly forcibly touched 4 female guests. That's when the suspect was told to leave, which he did, only to return with a gun.
