WBZ NewsRadio 1030’s Bernice Corpuz reports
Darlene DeIorio, 45, of Revere was released on personal recognizance Monday after pleading not guilty to charges of disorderly conduct and resisting arrest.
Police were called to the Danversport Yacht Club late Saturday night for a report of a “groom out of control.”
According to a police report obtained by the Salem News, the groom’s brothers tried to buy drinks at the bar and were refused.
That allegedly made the groom “irate” and he began yelling at an employee.
A member of the bride’s family reportedly tried to calm him down and the bride’s brother intervened.
The groom and his new brother-in-law ended up in a fight.
Moments later the groom’s mother – Darlene DeIorio – went after the bride’s mother, authorities said.
“Police made several efforts to calm her down and stop the fighting and Ms. DeIorio allegedly continued to try to start the fights up again at which time police informed her that she was being placed under arrest,” Carrie Monahan, a spokeswoman for the Essex County District Attorney told WBZ NewsRadio 1030.
“She physically resisted their attempt to take her into custody. Eventually she was handcuffed and put in a cruiser.”
DeIorio was not alone.
“One of the guests, Ms. (Paige) Cinelli, was becoming very hostile. Police placed her under arrest for disorderly conduct and another guest had to be put into protective custody.”
The groom may also face charges.
