According to the Cape Cod Times, both the husbnd and wife spent their first night married in a Hyannis jail. Marissa Ann Putignano-Keene married Timothy Keene Monday afternoon. After the serviced the couple celebrated by sharing a bottle of champagne. Some point in the evening the bride saw a woman that groom had a prevoius relationship with. The bride driving the new family car tried to run her over in a parking lot. Luckily the bride missed the woman who was with her son at the time and crashed into a fence. Police arrived and arrest the bride for assault and battery with a dangerous weapon and arrest the husband for disorderly conduct.
Assault and battery with a dangerous weapon is a felony. It appears to me that charges may not be approriate here. In order for there to be a battery there must be a touching. Here it seems like the bride missed the intended victim. From my reading of this I would say that it seems like it should be an assault with a dangerous weapon. Either way it is not the way spend your wedding night.
