Maryland Woman Gets 5 Years for Bridal Veil Attack

HAGERSTOWN, Maryland -- A woman is going to prison for breaking into her neighbor's house wearing nothing but a bridal skirt and veil.

The Herald-Mail of Hagerstown, Maryland, reports that a judge sentenced 33-year-old Melissa Wagaman on Thursday to five years. A jury had convicted her of second-degree assault, fourth-degree burglary and reckless endangerment for the February attack that injured Aaron Parrott.

Wagaman testified at trial that a combination of cold medicine and marijuana apparently made her hallucinate that she was getting married and that her mother was locked in her neighbor's basement.

Wagaman broke a dining room window with her head, causing shattered glass to cut an artery in her neighbor's arm.

Wagaman apologized to the Parrotts during Thursday's hearing.
