Bride arrested for DUI on way to her wedding

MARANA, Ariz. – An Arizona bride was arrested while driving to her wedding – allegedly while impaired – Monday morning, and naturally there’s a photo, according to KTVK.

Sgt. Chriswell Scott of the Marana Police Department tweeted a picture of Amber Young’s arrest. She was wearing her wedding dress, hands cuffed behind her back.

According to Scott, Young was released after “submitting to a blood draw.”

Scott also said the 32-year-old did not take a breath test so there are no preliminary blood alcohol concentration (BAC) results.

Arizona has some of the strictest DUI laws in the country. Punishment is assured if a person’s BAC is 0.08 percent or above, but Arizona law allows consequences if there is impairment “to the slightest degree.”

Young’s arrest was preceded by a three-vehicle wreck. Scott tweeted that one person suffered minor injuries and was taken to the hospital.

“Don’t drive impaired, till death do we part doesn’t need any help,” Scott tweeted.

    Major facts of this story aside, who the hell gets married on a Monday? Apparently, neither she nor her guests are gainfully employed. Monday is bad enough, but Monday morning? Something’s wrong with this kid and it goes deeper than drunk driving.
