A wedding reception turned ugly when the groom-to-be was arrested and charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, police said.

Reports indicate the groom-to-be, 23, was intoxicated from his wedding reception and had grabbed two knifes trying to attack people inside a home in the 5300 block of East McKinney Street on Friday night. Several small children and adults were inside the home, according to reports.

Police said this was an aftermath of a wedding reception for a young couple that were going to be married. Victims, according to police, were the soon-to-be brother-in-law and father-in law.
