Pistol-packing Tennessee bride arrested after pulling gun from wedding dress firing at new husband

Published

The honeymoon did not last long.

Just hours after saying “I do,” a Tennessee bride pulled a 9 mm pistol from her wedding dress, pointed it at her groom and pulled the trigger, according to court documents and media reports.

Kate Elizabeth Prichard, 25, of Kenton, Tennessee, faces a charge of aggravated domestic assault. Her husband, James Burton, was not injured in Monday’s incident.

“Responding officers let the husband know the honeymoon was over and his new wife was going to jail,” Sergeant Kyle Evans of the Murfreesboro Police Department told WTVF-TV.

Prichard was still in her wedding dress when she was arrested, Evans said.

The incident followed an argument with Burton at the Clarion Inn motel near Murfreesboro, according to court documents.

Prichard at first pointed the gun her new husband’s head, and pulled the trigger, but no shot was fired. She then racked a round into the gun chamber and shot it into the air, the court documents show.

It is not known if Prichard was aware there was no bullet in the gun when she first pulled the trigger.

Police arrived at the scene after a call to the Murfreesboro police said a woman had threatened to shoot her husband for pushing her against a wall. The pair were uncooperative and denied the allegations, the records show.

Evans declined further comment to Reuters on Wednesday. Neither Prichard nor Burton could be reached for comment. It was not clear if Prichard was represented by an attorney. A manager at the Clarion Inn did not respond to a request for comment.

Prichard posted a $15,000 bond, according to the Rutherford County Jail. The jail spelled her last name “Pritchard,” though it was spelled “Prichard” in police and court records.

‘Odd Radio Circles’ perplex astronomers studying the newly discovered phenomenon

Published

Astronomers believe they have discovered a new, bizarre type of cosmic object that is invisible to all wavelengths of light except radio.

This story originally appeared at Salon.

The strange circular objects in question have been unofficially dubbed "Odd Radio Circles" (ORCs); three of them were discovered in a recent data accumulated during a preliminary survey by the Australian Square Kilometre Array Pathfinder, a radio telescope array in Western Australia. A fourth Odd Radio Circle was discovered when researchers sifted through old data from 2013.

Bill Barr quietly pulls off a shake-up in a federal prosecutor’s office — but why?

Published

on

Attorney General Bill Barr’s attempt last month to push U.S. Attorney Geoffrey Berman out of his position at the Southern District of New York blew up in his face. While Berman was ousted, Barr didn’t get the replacement he wanted, and House Democrats are now investigating.

But last Friday night, Barr successfully pulled off a similar maneuver in the Eastern District of New York. Richard Donoghue no longer leads that office, as he has taken the position of principal associate deputy attorney general at Main Justice. Seth DuCharme, who had been principal associate deputy attorney general and worked under Barr, will now serve as the acting U.S. attorney for EDNY.
