Wedding Bells and Bars: Women Arrested in Separate Wedding Crimes

collinsmolliestoryThere appears to be an emerging field of wedding torts and crimes this month. Recently, we saw a lawsuit against a woman who ruined a wedding by announcing that she was sleeping with the groom (hint: she was not the bride). Now, in Naples, Florida, Molly S. Collins (left), 19, is accused of stealing make up gifts for the bridesmaids after a wedding reception while in Tampa Lisa Coker is accused of crashing a wedding with a razor and crowbar — and attacking the wedding party.

Collins is accused of stealing hundreds of dollars worth of make up kits at the wedding reception. She is also accused of lifting one of the wallets of the bridesmaids.

In the meantime, police say that Coker appeared at the wedding reception of her ex-boyfriend with a razor and a crowbar. Assuming that the crowbar was old and the razor new, it was not clear what was borrowed. However, she proceeded to beat people black and blue — putting him in the hospital.

Coker was stopped at the door by the mother of the groom, Gail Hosey, and Coker first attacked her. Hosey succeeded in taking away the crowbar, but a fight ensured and Hosey was slashed on the arm.

She has been charged with aggravated battery.

  1. from Eric Taylor’s 1981 Featherbed Records, Shameless Love, the title cut:

    Some will call it a love song honey
    Lost in the melody lost in the rhyme.
    Just another song about love gone funny
    heard it before a thousand times.
    But it’s shameless love that sings the song.
    When it’s all been sung and the music ends
    Tears are only salty water
    and it’s shameless love again.

    Some say love is an outlaw raven,
    sun goes down and away he flies
    To steal the blind man’s watch and chain
    and ask politely for the time.
    Shameless love makes a thief out of me.
    Catch me, chain me to the prison walls;
    I’ll rust the chains with salty water
    Shameless love will set me free.

    Here’s my heart and all that’s in it.
    Some say roses, and some say thorns.
    Some say I’m a fool to give it
    Crazy as the moon in midnight storm.
    It’s shameless love that killed the clown.
    Somebody turn that spotlight down
    wash his face in salty water
    then shameless love abounds.

    Wish you’d been the first to love me
    Take me to your Texas towered plains.
    We could sleep and dream of one another
    Far away from the raven’s wings.
    And it’s shameless love makes a dreamer out of me;
    Shameless love is all I feel;
    Tears are only salty water
    and dreams are only real.

    (repeat first verse)
