You may have heard some nightmare wedding photography stories in the past, but probably nothing like this: a wedding photographer was arrested in Texas this past weekend after allegedly having sex with a guest, peeing on a tree, and making violent threats toward police officers.
WFAA 8 reports that 26-year-old wedding photographer Katherine Leigh Mehta was shooting a wedding at a venue near Weatherford, Texas, when things reportedly spiraled out of control.
Mehta “had been found having sexual intercourse with a male” wedding guest, and the wedding party informed the off-duty sheriff’s deputy who was working security at the venue, according to the arrest report by the Parker County Sheriff.
After Mehta was told her behavior was inappropriate and asked to leave, she reportedly left the building, yelled near a fountain, and then “went to a tree nearby and began to urinate.”
Deputies say they noticed “a strong odor of alcohol” and later found a bottle of prescription alprazolam (AKA Xanax) in her jacket. Mehta was arrested and taken to jail while making death threats toward the officers’ families, the report says.
In addition to working as a photographer, Mehta is also a swimsuit model who works under the name Max McIntyre.
Mehta’s sister tells WFAA 8 that Mehta was actually the victim in the story, claiming that Mehta had been given a spiked drink and taken advantage of by two men. She claims her sister’s loud outburst was actually cries for help.
Mehta was released shortly after her arrest on $10,738 bail. She currently faces charges that include public intoxication and a felony charge of obstruction or retaliation.
