HOUSTON -- Harris County sheriff’s authorities are investigating allegations from a Houston woman who says she was humiliated when she had to spend a night in jail wearing her wedding gown after she and her husband were arrested following their wedding reception as part of a drunk driving crackdown.

On Sunday, she pleaded guilty to the public intoxication charge in exchange for time served—her night in jail. Her husband, whose family posted bail to have him released, pleaded no contest and received a year’s probation, a $300 fine and community service.

Sheriff’s Maj. Fred Brown told the Houston Chronicle in Saturday’s editions authorities would review jail videos to see if the woman’s complaints were valid. She has not filed a formal complaint with the sheriff’s office.

Her complaint about being photographed is being investigated by the constable’s office.
