A dream wedding turned into a bit of a nightmare for a Texas couple after their wedding photographer allegedly got drunk, had sex with a wedding guest and peed on a tree before getting arrested.
Wedding photographer Katie Mehta, 26, who also works as a swimsuit model under the name Max McIntyre, had been hired to capture the picture-perfect moments at a wedding outside Weatherford, Texas, but by the end of the night she'd be the one captured by police.
The photographer's alleged misdeeds began when she was reportedly seen having sex with a male guest at the reception. An off-duty sheriff's deputy who was providing security at the wedding approached her and told her the behavior was inappropriate, local news station WFAA reported, citing the arrest report.
According to the report, Mehta left the building but was angry and began to yell outside near a water fountain. She was asked to leave, but instead she went over to a nearby tree and urinated, according to police.
During their interactions with her, deputies reported that they noticed a "strong odor of alcohol" and would later find prescription alprazolam in her jacket.
Mehta left the wedding, in the custody of the deputies, but her anger didn't subside. According to the report, Mehta threatened the deputies on the way to jail, telling them "Y'alls daughters are dead" and "Y'all families will be dead by Christmas."
Mehta's family told WFAA they believed she may have been given a spiked drink at the wedding. A woman who identified herself as Mehta's sister said she told them she started to feel ill and had gone outside when she was approached by two men who were trying to do "inappropriate things." She said her sister began to yell so that she could get help.
Mehta was charged with public intoxication and obstruction/retaliation, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports. She was released from the Parker County Jail on Sunday, after posting a $10,738 bail.
