Bride in wedding dress, groom among several arrested hours after wedding

PRESCOTT, Ariz. — A man and woman who had just gotten married were among a group of people arrested in Arizona over the weekend.

Officers with the Prescott Police Department responded to a report of a disorderly female wearing a wedding dress who tried to assault an employee at a local business.

Once police contacted a group of people at the location, officers say 32-year-old Eric Cordova became aggressive and refused to cooperate. He allegedly fought with the officer and both fell to the ground. During the struggle, several people that were with Cordova began to assault the officer and refused to obey commands, according to the department.

Additional officers arrived on scene and eventually gained control of the group.

Among them was 30-year-old Ashely Jordan, who was still wearing her wedding dress. Jordan and Cordova apparently had gotten married earlier in the day, police said.

Two officers suffered minor injuries from the incident.

The following people were arrested and booked into the Yavapai County Jail:

  • Eric Cordova, 32-year-old Chino Valley resident – Aggravated assault on a law enforcement officer, resisting arrest and disorderly conduct.
  • Ashely Jordan, 30-year-old Chino Valley resident – Aggravated assault on a law enforcement officer, resisting arrest, and disorderly conduct
  • Dustin Trout, 31-year-old Tempe resident – Aggravated assault on a law enforcement officer, disorderly conduct, obstruction of justice
  • Amos Puckett, 25-year-old Nevada resident – Obstruction of justice and disorderly conduct

Police say two other men were also cited and released from the scene for charges of disorderly conduct.
