Kate Elizabeth Prichard, 25, has been arrested for shooting at her husband hours after they got married. It was reported that she was arguing with her new spouse James Jarid Burton, 30, outside the Clarion Inn motel in Murfreesboro, Tennessee, US when she hauled a firearm out from underneath her wedding dress, pointed it at her new husband’s head and let go it.
Police said the gun was not loaded at the time, but Kate allegedly loaded the 9mm handgun later and fired it into the air, causing people nearby to flee. Kate was still in her wedding dress when she was arrested.
Before police arrived the scene, Kate allegedly tried to keep the weapon in the restroom of their motel room. The couple were both uncooperative with officers who arrived the motel and they denied that anything was out of order. In any case, witnesses debated the couple’s rendition of occasions and guaranteed they had been drinking and contending outside the motel before she eventually pulled out a weapon and shot.
Police officers at the scene let James know the honeymoon was over and his new wife was going to jail. She was charged with aggravated domestic assault and was booked into Rutherford County before being released on a $15,000 bond.
