A newlywed couple in the US spent their wedding night in separate jail cells after police said the bride tried to run over an old flame of the groom.
Police told the Cape Cod Times that 22-year-old Marissa Ann Putignano-Keene tried to run over the other woman and the woman's son in a parking lot.
The intended victim later told police that she had previously been in an intimate relationship with the groom.
Police said the couple married at Barnstable Town Hall and split a bottle of champagne afterward.
The bride was charged with assault and battery with a dangerous weapon.
Her husband, 37-year-old Timothy Keene, was riding in the car with her and was charged with disorderly conduct.
