Massive wedding brawl at Sheraton ends with 3 arrests and a death by heart attack
According to police, the donnybrook began when some of the guests in a wedding reception at the hotel, on Dock Street near 2nd, went to the hotel bar and began fighting among themselves.
Then, people who had attended a wedding at another venue but were staying at the Sheraton arrived at the bar and began fighting with the guests who were already knocking each other around, police spokesman Lt. Ray Evers said. The fisticuffs spilled from the bar into the hotel lobby and beyond, Evers said.
In the video, several officers are seen around a combative male, and one of the cops can be seen hitting the man three times with a baton.
Evers said that the unruly guest was also hit with a Taser. He was arrested and remained in jail Sunday night.
Police didn't identify him because he hadn't been charged, but Evers said that he was one of "the main combatants" and was expected to be charged with assault on police.
Two other men in their late 20s were cited for disorderly conduct, Evers said.
"If we had the opportunity to hit everyone with disorderly conduct, we probably would have," Evers said. "The 75 to 100 people involved probably deserved to be locked up."
In the video, Schultz can be heard asking, "Did they just deck the bride?" and then stating: "They just decked the bride."
