Maid of honour ‘drunkenly assaults guests before snatching best man’s car keys and nearly runs him over’

How to ruin your best friend's wedding.

Jennifer Butler’s big day drew some unwanted attention when her maid of honour, Amanda Willis, allegedly downed a bottle of Fireball whiskey at the reception, before asking guests for their car keys.

She apparently then came up to best man, Brian Butler, pulled his car keys from his pocket before getting in the drivers seat – almost reversing over him.

‘She took off, and his feet were dragging across the ground. He had to hit the E-brake,’ guest Robert Templeton said.

When Amanda was finally pulled from the car she turned and punched Robert in the face, says witnesses.

Eventually police arrived and arrested Amanda Willis and took her to hospital.

She will face charges of larceny, battery, grand theft of a motor vehicle, and violation of probation.
