Buzzed brother throws wrench in wedding party

BOZEMAN, Mont. — A 31-year-old Three Forks man faces criminal charges after his sister reported he showed up drunk to her wedding reception and hit her in the mouth with a large wrench.

David J. Sicotte was arrested Friday night in Three Forks and charged with felony assault with a weapon and disorderly conduct. He is jailed in Bozeman on $15,000 bond.

Prosecutors say Sicotte arrived at the reception uninvited, pushed his sister’s new mother-in-law to the ground and started fighting with the groom. Witnesses say Sicotte later came at his pregnant sister with the wrench.

The bride told police she slapped her brother and he responded by hitting her in the mouth with the wrench.

The police report says officers found Sicotte leaving the residence, carrying a large wrench.
