Post-nuptial brawl to end up in court

| Monday, Sept. 16, 2013, 10:57 p.m.

A North Hills man is scheduled to appear in court on Wednesday on charges stemming from a post-wedding brawl in Hampton Community Center.

Hampton police charged wedding guest Jason Michael Davies, 47, of Ingomar with aggravated assault, simple assault, disorderly conduct, resisting arrest, public drunkenness and reckless endangerment in connection with the Sept. 7 incident. He is free on $10,000 bail.

Davies' preliminary hearing is set for 1 p.m. before West Deer District Justice Suzanne Blaschak.

Police responded to a fight about 11 p.m. during a party. The brawlers caused “well over several thousand dollars in damages” to the community center, said Township Manager Chris Lochner. He said the borough might add security cameras and require a police officer at nuptials there.

The names of the people who rented the center, and the bride and groom, were not available.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
