Wedding reception goes wild in Girard

Published: Sat, May 22, 2010 @ 12:09 a.m.

Staff report


A wedding reception will be memorable for a newlywed couple from Struthers — but not in the usual way.

Police charged the groom, Dustin A. Beach, 24, with felonious assault, disorderly conduct and resisting arrest after an incident Saturday night at Mahoning Country Club. His bride, Ashley A. Drvoledic-Beach, 20, was charged with disorderly conduct. Both are of 51 Highland Ave., Struthers.

Police gave this account: Several calls were received about a fight in the parking lot at the country club. When police arrived, they found a 33-year-old club employee bleeding profusely from the face and nose. The victim, of Youngstown, told police he had tried to stop Beach from damaging club property and was assaulted. He told police that Beach beat him around the face.

An officer approached Beach, who was being detained by others at the reception, on the west side of the parking lot. As the officer tried to get control of Beach, the bride ran toward the officer, yelling and pulling the officer away. The officer freed himself; then the bride threw herself on top of the groom. The officer tried to get the bride away, but another man grabbed the officer and then he, too, was pushed away. At one point, the groom’s grandmother approached officers and wanted to talk to Beach.

The crowd, numbering about 15, surrounded the two police officers and yelled obscenities. Pepper spray and batons were used on the crowd, who had interfered with officers, police said.

The officers managed to get Beach onto the ground, where he was handcuffed. By then, backup had arrived from Liberty and McDonald police departments along with an ambulance.

Once placed in the cruiser, Beach continued to kick, curse and threaten police, officers said. At the scene near the fight, police found a small bag of marijuana.

Police noted that the victim’s injuries were serious enough that surgery was needed. The victim provided police with photos of his injuries that included fractures of the nose, eye socket, sinus cavity and injuries to his jaw, teeth and vision.

Beach was in Trumbull County Jail on Sunday and Monday and arraigned Monday in Girard Municipal Court. A preliminary hearing will be at 1:30 p.m. June 2. He was released on $10,000 personal recognizance bond.

Hmmm - you get tasered for running onto a baseball field but when you assault a police officer you only get peppered sprayed. Sounds like they were so drunk (and maybe high) that they would have laughed at the pepper spray!

Yes could_it_be you are right, there is more to the story, first the Girard police leaked this story a week after it happened, because they know their officer was wrong. The way the one officer conducted himself, was police brutality, they are releasing this story to hurry and cover it up. I wish the vindy would get all sides to the story before running a story that makes the bride and groom look like the vilians. The halls employee started the whole fight, but the police did not take anyone elses statement. The police officer pepper sprayed innocent people as they came out of the hall, one gentleman got sprayed with his hands full, he had a big box and a camcorder bag in his hands and the police officer ran to him and said F^$#&* you and sprayed him. That man was treated by the ambulance for excessive spray at the scene. The brides father got sprayed because he was pulling his daughter away from the police officer who was beating her with his baton. The father was twenty feet away from the officer and got sprayed in the back of his head, so I am pretty sure he was no threat to the officer. The same officer went after a 78 year old man, several guests jumped in front of the older man to keep the officer from spraying or hitting him. So yes there is a lot more to the story. Sounds like the bride and groom need a lawyer to sue the city of girards police dept. and the hall for ruining what is suppose to be a beautifull day in your life.

Let me guess, you agree with a police officer beating a woman with a baton,she looked very intimidating in her wedding gown. Like I said there is two sides to every sorry. Everyone knows someone who was wrongfully accused sometime in their life. The problem with this story being put on the front page is now the groom is guilty in the eyes of the public, and we are innocent until PROVEN guilty. The Girard officer made a lot of mistakes that evening, and now they are trying to make sure they don't get in any trouble for his actions.

Let me set the record straight.
The reason im posting here is because I was at this reception from beginning to end.I'm not sitting here behind a screen posting lies on half truths of what some people want you to believe.And i would be willing to take a lie detector test on what im about to say (but just not by the Girard PD.I would be happy to let Liberty PD or any other PD) perform it if they would be interested. With that being said, here is the true events as they unfolded.
The first time entering the bar, I ordered a beer,there were a few guests that ordered a shot of liquor. The woman who was in charge of the facility advised the 2 bartenders and the mother of the bride the halls rules were "no shots".The bartender thats involved advised the guests the way around it was to order it on the rocks so thats how the guests ordered it .Now as the guests ordered thier shots the same bartender poured himself 1 too. Now the bartender did this thru out the whole reception.Now in addition thruout the evening only the men were carded none of the woman.( now stay with me because im showing you the conduct of this bartender).As women entered the bar an ordered drinks the bartender would do a shot with them.And then would flirt with the women saying "stay in the here with me".We have many woman that will testifiy to this fact.We have a male guest that walked into the bar as the bartenders asked if anyone wants to do shots and he said yes, and was told "no you cant only the woman can".Now will this guest testifiy to this fact yes he will.We have numerous women that will come forward an testify to the fact that the bartender was trying to pick them up. No one said anything because no one wanted any trouble and ruin this wedding.Now if this is how this hall operates i would advise everyone to stay away from there to avoid any trouble. Now as the groom was walking down the steps from the room the reception was held he was being followed by the same egotistic bartender, who first, was well under the influence and should not have never left the bar area, at which point the bartender told the groom he was going to F#%K his wife tonight.the groom using better judgement just kept walking outside.

Now as to what happened outside the hall. As the groom exited the hall he was followed out by the two bartenders.At this time the one bartender who was hitting on all the woman inside the bar provoked the groom once again, yelling " come on, while raising his arms"the groom turned away from him and proceeded across the parking lot at this time the same bartender took off after him and was grabbed by the other bartender and told "hey man what are you doing, we're not out here to start any fights" The 1st bartender broke lose and ran after the groom and tackled him from behind and knocked him to the ground. Soooo you tell me how does a man who weighs maybe a buck 50 who is laying face down in a parking lot with this guy on his back, manage to bust this crackers nose, mess up his eye socket and jaw? HE CANT!!!!!!!!!!! Now lets get to the wonderful Girard police department officer which was 2nd on the scene that went rogue and actually caused the bulk of the insanity. 1st off how can he possibly justify using excessive force on the bride and hitting her numerous times and after knocking her down was actually going to continue beating her? Thank god someone grabbed his club to prevent it but unfortunely that man was pepper sprayed, full faced, another man who had his hands full was also pepper sprayed full faced, he was NO threat, The brides father was walking his daughter away from the scene and he was pepper sprayed! Actually this officer held up his baton and the spray and just sprayed it from right to left in a huge swath that got numerous people. (Which in the actual police report he stated and I quote "it malfunctioned and only emmitted a fog" Since when does a fog spray for like 20 feet and in a stream! Yes obscenities were yelled, everyone was hysterical because the bride was being beaten innocent people were sprayed and the cop himself actually kept calling these same people m fer's. He did not have a clue on how to handle the situation and actually made it worse! As stated above he was going to mace a 77 year old man who was doing nothing more than standing along the building. While this was going on I advised my wife to call 911 and get the State Police rolling because this cop was out of touch with reality, 911 refused to do that. Imagine that.
More interestinly is can anyone tell me why Girard PD did not get any statements from anyone who was at the party? Will the Vindy please report both sides?
And to prove the grooms innocence he stated he WILL take a lie detector test as to being the one whom is accused of assulting the bartender and while we are at it, will the 2 bartenders take a polygraph as well?

I was there and i know what really happened and all those being cruel don't know what happened, you weren't there but despite of what happened i still love the newlyweds because they are family. you want to bash me for it go ahead but if it were any of you you wouldn't be saying such cruel things about what happened.

It is apparent by some of the things posted on here that some people are heartless and of a cruel childish mentaility. To post such crap about people they dont even know is unexceptable and wrong.

Until you have 1st hand knowledge as to what happened AND hear BOTH sides of the story, it would be nice to show some empathy, as for this could happen to you or your family.

And to the bride, groom and the families, ignore what grkfire & LOL have said about you, they never seem to be happy unless they are posting trash talk.

I hope all of the facts come out in the end and all the negative things posted on here come back to bite them all in the a$$

My guess is that the first 10 posters are 100% pedigree Rednecks. It takes one to smell one. Or... the posts were written by the Vindicator Staff, who seem to have really jumped the gun here. What were they doing? Trying to start a Redneck riot! Seems like that's in vogue today. I agree with could_it_be. If the rest of this story is even partially true, not only does the Vindy owe an apology, but they owe this couple an investigation of this first respondent police officer. Vindy... you may have a lawsuit on your hands unless you get off your incite-a-riot asses and report the truth. Sitting back and doing nothing... now is unacceptable.

Your statements shows exactly what your thinking is: "...bust this crackers nose..." also there is no state police in Ohio, there is the osp and they have no jurisdiction in incorporated areas. It sounds like a very well rehearsed script you are working from, I hope we can play cards someday because you have shown your whole hand before placing any bets. As for the bride and groom just look on You Tube for fights fromm wedding receptions and you will see the kind of havoc that a 150 lb groom and a bride in her wedding dress can cause.

32lies(7 comments)posted 6 years, 1 month ago

ok first of all the bartender is my brother in law and is not at fault in anyway except for trying to be a good person and detain a drunken groom who was out of control until the cops arrived. My brother in law was actually inside the county club when a woman ran in and yelled for the two bartenders to come outside due to the fact that the groom was in the parking lot irrate and going crazy hitting peoples cars. when my brother in law walked past the groom he was shoved , unfortunately my brother in law brought the groom down to the ground and was pinning him until the cops got there, however the groomsmen from the bridal party jumped on top of my brother in law and began to basically beat the crap out of him, so much so that yes he was rushed to the hospital and yes he has sustained severe damages , and yes he has to have several surgeries to reconstruct his face just so he can breathe normally again, so contrary to comments that were made on here about it being the bartenders fault I know first hand what happened. Just a little FYI this was a rowdy group of people even before the reception started due to a fight that broke out in the parking lot prior to the reception before dinner or drinks were even served. That fight was broken up but it just goes to show that there were problems already from the start of the evening. And yes the comment about the county club being liable for inadequate security, it is very much so required that two officers must be present if alcohol is being served at a reception and one officer present if no alcohol is involved, thats on them however. Hope this clears some of the slanderous comments up for everybody!

This is to thetruestory. I would like to point out that u have terrible spelling and then you try to save your mistake by saying that you feel sorry for a story. I can assure you that the story doesn't have any feelings. Therefore, none were hurt. Second of all to whomever said Girard is a want to be ghetto I think you are wrong. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion, however just as the other people of Struthers feel that they are not all trash, I'm sure the people of girard feel the same way. Every city has some bad people. This time they came from Struthers but next time they could come from anywhere else. And i think that if you assault a police officer when he is not only threatened by the woman but the other 15 people surrounding him and yelling at him he might need to use the force of a weapon in the manor that they did to regain control of a situation such as this one. You will never know what it is like to be faced with that until it happens to you. And hopefully you will never have to do that. Those police officers did what they had to do to protect themselves and they should have everyone's support. These are the people that protect our cities, and everyone should support them in any way possible. We shouldn't be tearing them down for protecting themselves.

37itsme(2 comments)posted 6 years, 1 month ago

In regards to time4truth's post i would like to say that Girard Police is capable of handling this situation. However, I would like to have seen what you would've done if thrown into that situation in the police officers shoes. You will never be able to pass judgment on that officer unless you have gone through that yourself. And a mob of people screaming posses a large threat to an officer because why would he just bank on the possibility that they wouldn't have tried to harm him. And if they didn't want to be harmed in any way they should've kept their distance from the situation. They chose to become a part of the situation. Therefore, by making themselves a part of the events and yelling and sreaming at the officer they were becoming a threat. why would the officer wait for them to turn violent to begin containing the situation. That is what those people get for trying to become involved in what was going on. As you said, there are two sides to the story and if the officers story and your story met somewhere in the middle it might be believable. But I think everyone that is not friends with the bride and groom will agree that it is hard to believe that a police officer showed up on scene ready to unjustly beat people, including the bride, unnecessarily. They are trained to handle those types of situations. And next time you wish for an officer to lose his job think about what will happen if police are restricted or hesitant to use force against people for fear they will be charged with assault or removed from their position. What will happen when you need them to protect you one day and they don't want to use a taser on the person that is robbing you or assaulting you for fear that the person will press charges. Will we be protected at all? I think that both sides to this story are exaggerated, but mostly the account given by time4truth. Just think about the effects of what you are saying about these officers, and realize the implications of those suggestions. I'm not saying to pass the blame of the situation off on the groom, however, I am saying that i think all accounts of what happened should be considered and since you are a bias person, having a relationship to the bride or groom, you wold not be the one to hold a neutral position on this matter.

I see.. Yep, you do know what happen. Now, can you say 2nd HAND LIES!!! yeah..
I don't think that person should of hit anyone (ONCE) in the face, believe me, BUT this was, as your brother in law the "server" claims, getting outta hand. So they should of never been making stupid comments about the bride to the groom! He was not there to DRINK SHOTS with the party, he was there to serve. PERIOD! Not to flirt, drink or comment on anything. He was hired by the bride and groom so he should not of been Disrespectful. He was serving and doing shots All Nite! What he did was illegal. If he thought the party was starting out bad.. Sure, ADD MORE ALCOHOL!! Really? He is not classified as a "Bartender". They claim he was a "server". Bartenders usually have more sense then to allow people to be served while underage!! Also, they tend to cut people off before they get so drunk they start slamming there heads into hard objects! I don't know how he got this job, but it wasn't for his brains!! He needs to take this time off to refocus his career. I'm sorry he got hurt, but he was just as drunk and stupid as the people he was serving.

Also, I did see & here the phone call to 911 & she was trying to get help to come to the club. Help from the officer with the "malfunctioning pepper spray"!!!
Now, VINDY.. Make It Right! Show the results of the lie detectors. See Who Is WILLING to take one! I'll Bet My Life, not one of the Girard Officers Will!!! I'd Bet the groom would even take it, LIVE!!! lol Hey, lies.. Lets see if your brother in law the bartender will do THAT!!

I understand that vindy posted this (esp. without the entire truth of the matter) but that doesnt make it any of your business or concern. you know nothing of them so keep your ignorant, lifeless and meaningless comments to yourself and get off your couch and do something besides sit at home and read the paper then go on the computer and make ridiculous remarks about people that have NOTHING, absolutely NOTHING, to do with you or your life.

47time4truth(4 comments)posted 6 years, 1 month ago

Ok Let me clear a few things up. If you read my post, I did not say ALL of the girard police officers were wrong.While the one girard police officer was doing his job as trained, the other officer was too busy pepper spraying innocent bystanders, which were not of any threat at all. And as I stated I am NOT anti cop.The fact is I am personal friends with several police officers, whom I respect. Now with that being said, I want everyone who is posting on this site to read "lies" first post and read it again and again. Why am I saying this you might ask? Their post STATES the groom IS innocent of assault charges. Now its time for his/her brother in law to step forward and do the right thing.Their post says HE took down the groom.and he/she states the groomsmen of the wedding party beat him.Now my question is why on gods earth did he tell the girard police that it was the groom WHO assaulted him.
Now for all you people posting trash about the bride and groom you need to grow up and do something constructive with your lives instead of posting to something you know nothing about.
As for "lies" im sorry your brother inlaw is going thru what hes going thru.But by the same token he brought this on himself. He did get drunk and he did make many unjust comments to most of the woman there, which in essence is sexual harassment.Furthermore what was his reasoning to tell the groom he (the Bartender/server) was going to f#$k the bride that night? Does anyone here think that was called for? And if you do you better look in the mirror and call yourself a hillbilly.

In my opinion I feel many people overstepped boundries and acted like animals, but is that still any reason to almost beat a man to death???? I think not.

I think its funny that kornersburg kid is calling people from Girard, Campbell and Struthers trash. I'm praying from your name your not from Cornersburg b/c that is just the outskirts of Austintown my man! Austintown, you can tell an Austintown girl from a mile away, black roots and white (supposed to be blonde) hair! And all the Affliction you can find at a garage sale!

All I have to say, is beating the crap out of someone to the point they need several surgries it NOT needed! Maybe the groom should not have drank! When I found out the about the situation my heart when out to the employee. He was doing what his boss asked him to do. First thought in my mind was, what the heck was the groom on to ruin his own wedding. If a person can not handle drinking, why do it on a special occassion? Noone has even said why the groom was out in the parking lot causing damage! What made him so mad on one of the most important nights of his life? To all of you post ing on the groom/bride's side, and the employee's side: None of you are going to be completely truthful! You all want your person(s) to come out lily white. I am sure there were mistakes on both sides. But there was NO need for someone to be beaten that badly!!!

if a bartender at my wedding said they were gonna F_ _ _ my bride. Would it or would it not have been worse than this. You were there, tell the truth... Put it this way, he wouldn't have been able to talk yet, so speaking to the police or vindy.com, wouldn't have been an option. But who knows, who is telling the truth here, so many different stories it's nuts

All I can say is if the bartender said that,which this is hearsay, why did the groom not go to the manager or owner? There are better ways of solving problems then fists. I personally think friends or family members of the groom and bride are starting rumors here on the thread to make it seem they had the right to beat the crap out the guy. I call BS!!!!!!!! The bartender should NOT have been beaten like he was, period!!!! Grow up and deal with problem like adults!!!!!

No one needs to be hurt by another human for stupidity. Yes, the groom was drunk and having the server comment about the bride like he did, well not a good combo. Most people would have more sense then to say such things to a groom, drunk or not!! People were trying to get him outside so he could cool off. The server followed him out & continued to egg him on. After he hit the groom and got him to the ground he was hit, once, by one person to try and get him off the groom. He was not beaten. It was a fluke thing that so much damage was done. I'm sorry he was hurt, but he did start the fight, so I'll say Boys will be boys. Its said he went out to stop a drunk driver?? Why put yourself in danger for someone you were serving too much alcohol to. Should of called the cops for that! You say the boss told you too? ok.. What about the part where your boss said you were NOT allowed to serve shots? That part you were ok with?

WTH: There is no way he was hit once and ended up with all that damage, unless the guy was a black belt, boxer, or kickboxer. And from what I understand the owner/manager asked the employee to help him keep everything under control til the cops got there. Not that he followed him to egg him on. I think that people are making excuses for the groom, so he can have a reason why he did what he did. So I can't believe what you people are saying! And if it was only one punch, why were so many cops sent? That just doesn't add up! By the way where you there WTH? Cause if you were, of course you would be on the side of the groom and bride!!!

all i have to say is why are people still talking trash it was over a week ago seriously its time to let this go it could have happend to any one of you and im sure that everyone that was at this party feels bad for the server but if he had the groom pinned down then i highly doubt that the groom could have done that type of damage to his face i mean really look at it that way and as for calling them such rude names is just ridiculous to i mean really people get off your a$$e$ and get a life ok!!!

LOL: you are an example of what is wrong with society! Noone deserves to beat like that for the reasons stated. As for the cop thing. You said they got call to a large fight, my point was people are claiming there was only 1 punch thrown. As for the bartender, he was asked by the MANAGER/OWNER to help contain the problem til cops arrived. He was only doing what his boss was asking!
I agree with steelerman, anyone who fights like this at their own wedding,or anyone's wedding is trashy!!!!

Last time I looked word didn't hurt, but bruises the ego!! That was the whole problem here, someone's ego was hurt,and he just had to prove himself!!! And of course all his friend had to jump in instead of talking some sense into him! Maybe there should not have been drinking at the wedding!!!

I vehemently disagree. Bin Laden? Hitler? Unibomber? and the drunk bartender at the wedding that said he was gonna boink the bride.

Sounds like all that's missing is Jerry Springer and a microphone. Seems to me the ultimate problem here is the management of the club. I have been to weddings there in the past and have never been impressed. But, to not provide armed security at such an establishment for an event that will involve alcohol is criminal. Every other establishment I have been to for a wedding has had armed security. I would check the bill to see if there are charges for police. It was a line item on my wedding bill. And, if a "server" is pouring drinks, he is a bartender and management should never allow bartenders to drink with the guests. Now, as far as the bride and groom are concerned, why would you be drunk on one of the, hopefully, happiest days of your life? With all due respect to the families of these two, the groom is just as bad as the creep bartender.

But, to blame the Girard police officer for responding in the fashion he did is unfair. Nothing worse for a cop to respond to than a domestic disturbance, especially when substance abuse is involved. If people would just obey the officer's commands, this kind of situation won't happen.

So, it seems that calling the parties involved here hillbillies and white trash may be a bit exaggerated and distasteful, but not unwarranted.

the groom was drinking at his reception is he the first groom in history to do so
some the greatest moments in peoples lives involve a drink its called a celebration(even though not everyone includes drinks)
if the groom caused property damage which lead THE SERVER (its a hall not a bar, thats why they cant give out shots
who also broke company policy by doing this and when is drinking on the job ok would you want drunk servers at your wedding) outside then why wasnt he charged
and if my boss looks at me and says go get 15-20 drunk people under control with only two of my co-workers i would of said thanks but know thanks
besides the police where on the way right so either that was never said or we got a john wayne on our hands
as far as the police of course you believe them they protect you nobody wants to think a cop would be dishonest
we are human everybody lies and no body wants to look or feel bad
sounds like a couple of cops where in over there heads and did what the had to to get the situation under control(kick butt take names later)
and for the hall new management new policy clean it up get people in there who can handle these situations
like i said the truth will come out
and for the groom know when to say when

"I pay for the liquir and I pay for you to supply the liquir to my guests....I would be damned if you told me I couldnt have shots at my own wedding..." I don't even do shots myself but if my family is paying you to be a bartender then you should listen to the guests requests unless it is something personally harmful to yourself or someone else.

You stated " I know first hand what happened"

You are in fact " not telling the truth"
You were not there ,so you can NOT state the you know first hand.
You either dont know what the meaning of first hand is and are just being STUPID or you are in fact LYING.

to respond to 1970mach1. OSP was requested by the mayor to work with the YPD in saturation patrols in the Youngstown area. They enforce traffic laws on state routes and criminal investigations on state property such as prisons and state buildings. The Sheriff's dept is highest authority in any county in the state of Ohio. There are initiatives to eliminate OSP because of the cost/benefit ratio.

GoNEO, I couldn't agree more. I hate to find humor in something when a man's face has to be reconstructed, and I am sure he is not laughing at all, until he sues just about everyone involved and ends up laughing all the way to the bank. But these hill Jacks and Jills have really come out of the woodwork to show the world their grammar mistakes and utter disrespect for the english language. Reminds me of a scene from Appalachian Emergency Room on SNL. If this case goes to court, someone should be paid a hefty sum just to film the whole thing and make a hilarious documentary.

I've read all of the posts connected with this story and it saddens me how quickly some of the posters resort to stereotypical name calling when they comment upon this story. The use of these types of bigoted descriptors serves no real purpose except, perhaps, to highlight how far down a "low" road some posters are willing to go. Ah well, to my primary reason for posting. Ladies and Gentleman, the truth is, the "truth" lies somewhere in the middle of all this hyperbole. I'm quite sure that blame for this fiasco can be laid at the feet of not only the groom but also the facility management, the bartender, the Girard officer and the attending guests. I'm also sure that more than a few people will have consulted lawyers and I'm sure that at least one lawsuit will probably arise from this sad affair. It must have been a really slow news day for the Vindicator to dredge up a week-old story and post it on the front page of their paper.

Some of you are just so ignorant. Last time I checked, people of all races and zip codes can be ghetto. Since i wasnt there, I dont know what to believe, but it does sound like some people cant control their alcohol and some people with a badge use it to their advantage. MCC needs to answer some questions about a lack of security. And for the person who was going off about the couples address being displayed, their address is displayed on vindy.com and in the actual paper when they applied for a marriage license. Now days everything is public!!!

Someone said the bartender was sent outside by the owner because the groom was damaging cars. It wasnt MCC property so why did the owner care? The owner should of went outside himself or better yet locked the door and called the police. AGAIN, where was security? Sounds like MCC is charging people for security and not providing it and pocketing the money themselves. At least 2 security officers should of been present. How many guest were at this wedding anyways?
