Wedding photographer arrested after allegedly having relations with guest and urinating on a tree
A wedding photographer has reportedly been arrested after allegedly sleeping with a guest and urinating on a tree at Park Manor in Weatherford. According to the arrest report, a member of the wedding party alerted an off-duty sheriff, who was working on security at the event about the woman's "inappropriate" behaviour.
Katherine Mehta, 26, who also moonlights as a model, was arrested at The Springs Event Venue in Weatherford. An off-duty deputy who was working as a security guard that night was told that she was having sex with another guest in a room, at which point she was confronted.
Officers asked her to leave, according to an arrest report obtained by the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, but did not immediately do so. Instead, she yelled at them, then walked up to a tree on the property and urinated. After she was arrested, she reportedly threatened the officers on the ride in the back of the police cruiser in her inebriated state.
“Y’all families will be dead by Christmas, y’all’s daughters are dead,” she supposedly said. “My dad is going to find out about this and y’all are ******* dead. D-E-A-D.”
She was later charged with public intoxication and obstruction/retaliation, and was released from custody the following day after posting bail.
Police believe that some prescription medication she had taken, mixed with alcohol, could have been partially responsible for her behaviour. However, a woman who identified herself as Mehta's sister told WFAA that she thinks she was spiked during the ceremony, painting what could potentially be a much darker series of events.
“She said she went outside and she said these two men tried to approach her and do inappropriate things,” she explained. “And she said she was yelling and trying to get help, and things got turned around in a negative way.”
According to the venue, the incident “occurred privately between two vendors unaffiliated with our venue" and was soon resolved. “Police officers handled the matter discreetly — no guests were involved or disturbed from celebrating the couple in any way,” The Springs Event Venue's statement read.
