Well this is just rampant chaos, what with the screaming, billyclub wielding and brides getting decked last night at the Sheraton Society Hill. Also proved possibly deadly. To wit:
Per Fox29, “Police were called out to control a brawl between 2 wedding parties at the Sheraton in Philadelphia’s Society Hill section overnight. Police say a 57 year old man, reportedly the uncle of one of the brides, suffered a heart attack and died.” RIP, reported uncle of the bride.
Tell you what: If that guy died on account of police involvement, after a week consumed with stories about a woman getting walloped by an officer, it’s going to be a rough, rough week for Mayor Nutter and Commissioner Ramsey, even if said involvement was warranted.
UPDATE: Monday morning arrest info via PPD Lt. Ray Evers …
Below is the name of the individual that is being processed for assault on Police. Philadelphia Police Department expects that there will be more arrests in the future (not today). This is an active investigation.
