Chriswell Scott of the Marana Police Department in Arizona tweeted a photo of the bride, Amber Young, 32, of Tucson, wearing a long, white wedding dress as an officer escorted her into a waiting auto.

The bride's arrest followed a three-car crash, and Scott insinuated in a now-deleted tweet that Young's alleged intoxication was a factor.

A picture issued by the Marana Police Department shows the bride-to-be in handcuffs being ushered into the back of a patrol vehicle on a busy road.

A Marana bride was arrested while driving to her wedding allegedly while impaired Monday morning.


In a tweet, Scott said "Don't drive impaired, till death do we part doesn't need any help". One person was transported with minor injuries.

'This could've turned out way worse than it did. She was then released to her fiance after signing a criminal citation.

Arizona has some of the harshest DUI laws in the country, according to KPHO in Arizona.

According to Fox News, an officer at the scene, Sergeant Chriswell Scott tweeted a photo of the bride being handcuffed in all her wedding finery. Driving with a blood alcohol level of 0.08 percent or above is illegal, but Arizona law allows consequences if there is impairment "to the slightest degree".
