Bradley John Stiner: Marco Island wedding crasher arrested after disrupting nuptials, police say

He was a wedding crasher of the worst kind.

During a beachfront wedding on Marco Island, police said a drunken local disrupted a couple's nuptials by running back and forth behind the altar, shouting obscenities and lobbing unopened beer cans, at one point hitting the best man in the back, police said.

Now Bradley John Stiner, a 22-year-old Marco Island resident, faces a misdemeanor battery charge and the scorn of a wedding party whose memories have been tarnished.

Police said Stiner started acting up during the Friday evening beachfront wedding by running behind the altar, drawing the wedding party's attention. Attendees at first ignored Stiner, but soon Stiner drew closer and started shouting, "Hey tourists, get off my beach, I'm local," an arrest report said. Stiner then shouted obscenities and threw full beer cans, hitting several attendees, the report said. Several party members chased after Stiner, causing the wedding to break up.

When questioned by officers, Stiner had difficulty standing without swaying, the report said. When officers asked how much alcohol Stiner had consumed, he refused to answer and said he has a "right to be on the beach as a taxpaying citizen," the report said. Stiner also shouted he is a veteran who should be allowed to do whatever he wants, officers said.

Following an arrest Friday on suspicion of disorderly intoxication, Stiner faces a battery charge after the best man hit with a beer can wanted to press charges Saturday.
