A woman who was hired to take photographs at a wedding in Texas was arrested after she was accused of causing trouble by becoming inebriated, having sex with one of the guests, and urinating on a tree.

On November 24, a couple were married and celebrating their nuptials at the Parker Manor.

26-year-old Katie Mehta, a wedding photographer, was hired to take pictures of their special day, but she allegedly provided more than what was required of her job description.

A man who was allegedly hanging out in a Florida park after hours issued a snarky retort to an officer in response to being asked for his name when he was approached about his trespassing.

Around 6:00 pm on November 6, a deputy at John Chestnut Park in Palm Harbor encountered a man on the grounds and informed him that he would have to leave because the park was closed for the evening.

When the deputy asked the man what his name was so that he could give him a warning for trespassing, he reported that the suspect said that his name was “Ben Dover.” The presumed-trespasser then allegedly stuck up his middle finger in the direction of the deputy and advanced upon him in a manner that gave the agent the impression that he was going to become physically aggressive.

On Wednesday in Seymour, IN, two teenagers were arrested as the suspects of an incident involving a church that was broken into and desecrated in November.

18-year-old Shawn Battice and a 16-year-old unnamed adolescent allegedly used the double doors in the back of the Seymour First Presbyterian Church to illegally enter the building in the early morning hours of November 24. They stole the money out of a collection box in the basement, and then located five fire extinguishers which were affixed throughout the church. The pair discharged the extinguishers into the basement, youth recreation room, sanctuary and choir room, covering the organ, furniture and pianos with the contents, according to Seymour Police Department Detective Sgt. C.J. Foster. A church trustee reported that the total damage caused was assessed at nearly $10,000.

An official investigation led authorities to the teenagers, and they were taken into custody on Wednesday evening. When Battice was interviewed by detectives he said that he and the 16-year-old did in fact enter the church without consent, and that they stole money and used the fire extinguishers to cause the damage.
