MARCO ISLAND, Fla., Dec. 10 (UPI) -- Authorities in Florida said they arrested a drunken wedding crasher accused of shouting obscenities and throwing beer cans during the ceremony.

Marco Island Police said Bradley Stiner, 22, of Marco Island, who was not familiar with the couple or their wedding party, was seen running behind the altar at the beachfront wedding Friday evening, trying to get the attention of the wedding party, the Naples Daily News reported Monday.

Police said Stiner became frustrated when the wedding party members ignored him and started shouting, "Hey tourists, get off my beach, I'm local."

Stiner then allegedly shouted obscenities and threw unopened beer cans at the wedding, striking the best man in the back with one of the cans.

Police said Stiner had difficulty standing without swaying when they spoke to him and refused to tell officers how much alcohol he had consumed prior to the incident. He was arrested and charged with disorderly intoxication and the man who was struck by the beer can decided to press a misdemeanor battery charge Saturday.
