No matter what happens on your wedding day, here is one thing that you can probably be grateful didn’t happen. In Charleston, South Carolina, Samuel James Dengel, 20, crashed a wedding in a whole new way—by pressing his genitals up against a window in full view of the bride, groom, and all the guests just as the vows were about to be exchanged.
Guests immediately alerted hotel staff to the incident. Officials rushed to Dengel’s room, where he was found wearing a towel and nothing else. He also had a female guest in his room. Police arrived soon after and arrested Dengel for indecent exposure.
Dengel had apparently first waved at guests from his window fully clothed. He left and returned shortly buck-naked. He claims he then pressed his genitals up against the window and bent over to show guests a tattoo of the Latin phrase Vi very veniversum virus, which roughly translates to “By the Power of Truth, I, while living, have Conquered the Universe.”
Needless to say, the guests were not entertained. According to philly.com, one guest reported that Dengel “placed his buttocks against the glass several times and bent over,” exposing his tattoo and other private bits.
We can only imagine that the bride’s horror was tenfold that of the guests, and we hope her big day wasn’t completely ruined by the unexpected bawdy guest. This certainly isn’t the first, nor the last, wedding horror story out there—share with us some you have experienced or heard of in the comments below!
