Wedding reception turns rowdy

NEW CASTLE, Pa. – Two people suffered injuries when a man struck them with his car as couples left a weekend wedding reception.

Justice A. Mackey, 20, was arrested after people attending the party said they ran away from his car in the parking lot to avoid being hit.

The incident started when Mackey and two women, including one who was his girlfriend, got into an argument before leaving the reception.

Problems grew worse when Mackey returned to the parking lot and accelerated his car toward the crowd, striking two men, bystanders said.

Mackey said he was trying to get away from a group of men who he said were kicking his car. Others said he initiated the attack, according to police reports.

An ambulance was called to the scene and the two injured men were taken to a hospital for treatment.

Mackey told authorities he didn't realize he had hit the men.
