    Ocean Ridge police arrested 27-year-old Jeffery E. Alvord on Sunday following the fight with a 24-year-old man who refused offers of $50 to move out of the way of the wedding pictures.

    Alvord told police the man became "very belligerent," making him feel threatened. So he punched the man. The victim told police a groomsman held him so Alvord could hit him.
