Key West, FL- Some people should just stay away from weddings...
Photo: Monroe County [FL] Sheriff's Office[/caption]Police say 29-year-old Jovanny Arredondo was "showing off" with a knife at a wedding reception December 15th when he made stabbing motions at the groom, 29-year-old Nicolas Camargo. The knife hit Camargo in the thigh.
Later that night, Arredondo fell from a second-floor balcony at the restaurant and fled the scene. A witness said Arredondo was hanging from a banister when it broke, causing him to fall.
Arredondo WASN'T charged for the stabbing, since police believe it was unintentional. However, he will face misdemeanors for disturbing the peace and improperly displaying a weapon, as well as a felony charge of criminal mischief. [Miami Herald]
Hopefully the ACTUAL wedding was less eventful.

35-year-old Adul Saosongyang was charged with grand theft after stealing his roommate's winning lottery ticket and replacing it with a losing one.
