Officers located the bride and groom, identified as 30-year-old Ashley Jordan and 32-year-old Eric Cordova, along Prescott’s Whiskey Row. Cordova allegedly became aggressive toward officers when they approached Jordan.
An officer tried to restrain Cordova, but the pair fell to the ground during the struggle. Other members of the wedding party began assaulting the officer to prevent Cordova’s arrest.
