A wedding ended with the groom in handcuffs after a server for the Gateway Clipper claimed he was being "handsey with her" and inappropriate throughout the night.

The 19-year-old server said she felt uncomfortable and tried to avoid the groom, identified as 33-year-old Mark Williams, who she said was trying to force her to take shots of liquor.

"The groom was so drunk. He came over and started rubbing my head and put his hand on my body, just touchy-feely," said the young woman, who did not want to be identified.

The server called her boyfriend to pick her up, and an argument between her boyfriend and Williams led to punches being thrown about 1 a.m. on West Station Square Drive, near the Gateway Clipper entrance, police said.

When officers arrived, Taylor and Williams were bloody and walking away from the scene, police said. When officers questioned them, police said, they started screaming and put up a fight.

David Williams is a Pennsylvania State Police trooper and was off-duty at the time of his arrest. State police are conducting an internal investigation.

While the bride watched, police handcuffed her new husband, his brother and Taylor. All three men were arrested and taken to the Allegheny County Jail.

"She was very understanding. She didn't at all argue with anybody," the server said. "She was probably shocked and in tears that this happened on her day."
