Groom Arrested Over New York Backyard Wedding Fireworks

Guests watching a fireworks display after a New York wedding were cheering the bride, groom and booms when police arrived. The groom ended up under arrest.

Nassau County police say they were called to a Massapequa home early Saturday and found a big party with professional-level pyrotechnics in the backyard, including 49 pyrotechnic mortars, a pyrotechnic display cake and numerous firecrackers.

Police say 39-year-old Thomas A. Giglio explained he was setting them off to celebrate his wedding.

He's been arrested on a fireworks possession charge and is scheduled back in court on July 11.

Bail was set at $5,000.
