Astros pitcher Brandon Backe was among 10 people arrested during a brawl with police at a weekend wedding reception in a Galveston hotel bar.


Quote:
"We are aware of an incident involving Brandon. We have spoken with him regarding his version of the event. Since this is a legal matter, any further comment on our part would be inappropriate," Astros spokesman Jimmy Stanton said in a statement.

Backe was charged with interfering with a police officer and resisting arrest, said Joel H. Bennett, Galveston County assistant criminal district attorney. Both charges are misdemeanors. He was released on $1,500 bond.

Funeral brawls are also a lot of fun.

Here's what I don't understand — isn't Galveston one of the last places on earth where you'd want to throw a wedding reception right now?

I imagine that Galveston was the agreed-upon venue long before the hurricane hit. Perhaps that's why Backe was so pissed. ;)
