Maine man accused of hitting bride with a car at wedding

LIVERMORE, Maine (AP) — A Maine man has been arrested on assault charges for allegedly striking a bride and two others with his car at a wedding.

Curtis Moody, a guest at Saturday’s private wedding, allegedly struck three people when others at the private event attempted to stop him from driving, the Sun Journal reported.

Chief Deputy William Gagne said Monday that Moody, 51, was arrested at his residence on three counts of assault, reckless conduct, driving to endanger, and other charges.

Gagne said that Moody started pushing people that were attempting to stop him from driving and a fight broke out.

Moody then allegedly drove his car at the crowd striking the bride and two others before fleeing the scene, according to Gagne.

When officers arrived at Moody's Wilton residence he appeared to be intoxicated and told officers that he had a couple of beers after he got home, according to Gagne.

Gange said that he did not believe that any of the victims, whose names have not been released, were transported to the hospital. All three were evaluated on the scene, according to a police report.

Moody is being held at the Androscoggin County Jail in Auburn and is scheduled to appear Monday.
