State police are conducting an internal investigation into the arrest of a trooper accused of scuffling with Pittsburgh police who were responding to a fight at a wedding reception in Station Square.

David Williams, 35, of Plum, who works out of the Kiski Valley station, is free on bond and awaiting a preliminary hearing on charges of assaulting two police officers, resisting arrest, riot and related crimes.

Williams, who was not on duty when he was arrested on Monday, remains on scheduled leave, state police spokeswoman Maria A. Finn said on Tuesday.

Arrested was the groom, Mark Andrew Williams, 33, of Crafton, and a member of the bridal party, Sto-Rox School Board Vice President Brian Alvin Taylor, 31, of McKees Rocks. Williams is the trooper's brother.

Both are charged with resisting arrest and riot.
