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.
