Shortly after saying “I do,” a Tennessee bride was arrested for pulling a firearm out from beneath her wedding dress and pulling the trigger on her new hubby. Police said Kate Elizabeth Prichard, 25, and her groom had started fighting only hours after their nuptials in Murfreesboro, Tennessee, according to news station WTVF.
The couple was drinking outside a local motel called the Clarion Inn when they began to fight, authorities said. “She pulled out of her wedding dress a 9 mm pistol. Pointed it at her new husband’s head and pulled the trigger,” Murfreesboro Police Sgt. Kyle Evans told WTVF.
The gun, however, was not loaded, forcing the pistol-packing bride to load a round before reportedly firing a shot into the air. “Responding officers let the husband know the honeymoon was over and his new wife was going to jail,” Evans said.
Authorities took Prichard, who was still in her gown, into custody and charged her with aggravated domestic assault. She was released from Rutherford County jail on $15,000 bond.
