Wedding reception fight lands men in jail www.privateofficer.com
Officers found a large group of people in the park’s northwest parking lot, at 2100 Willowcreek Road, along with one suspect on the ground and a second already in handcuffs, courtesy of the security guard.
The handcuffed man, James Minard, 24, of Gary, told police he came upon a fight as he left the wedding reception. He said the person on the ground, a 42-year-old Hammond man police did not name, was swinging at a large group of people in the parking lot and punched several women. When the unnamed man saw Minard, he reportedly ran at and tackled him.
Even though the unidentified man was fighting even before Minard came outside and also had been causing trouble at the wedding reception all night, as several witnesses told police, Minard was charged with public intoxication and disorderly conduct because he continued to act aggressively as the security guard tried to separate the men.
Police did not name the other suspect because was not immediately arrested; he was transported to Portage hospital for a knee injury. Police said they will seek a warrant to arrest him for the same charges Minard faces.
