LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - The Angelina County Sheriff's Office arrested a Lufkin man after he allegedly went on a drunken rampage on his wedding day.

Deputies were dispatched to a residence on Edgewood Circle in reference to a fight in progress on Saturday.

Deputy B.J Murphy arrived and reported finding two men who were both bleeding from their heads, one on the ground and the other standing up holding a baseball bat.

Kemone Dickerson, 35, was identified as the man sitting on the ground. Witnesses told the deputy that it was Dickerson's wedding day, and that he had been drinking all day in celebration, according to the investigation.

Dickerson grew aggravated at the other man and assaulted him by hitting him in the head multiple times with a vase taken from inside a neighbor's open garage, according to the report.

Dickerson damaged a mailbox and threw a cinder block through the back window of the other man's car, according to the report.

During the rampage, Dickerson also punched his niece in the side of the head, causing her bodily injury, according to the report.

He is being held in the Angelina County Jail on a $26,500 bond. He is charged with aggravated assault, criminal mischief, burglary of habitation and assault family violence.

Sheriff's Office spokesman Lt. Pete Cooper said he did not know if Dickerson had a chance to get married or not.

It is unknown if he ever got to get married or not.
