Pinellas County Sheriff's Office Sgt. Spencer Gross said the men were asked to leave, but refused to do so, shoving guests and threatening the bride.  

Deputies said McAllister took a guest's glasses and threw them onto the road.

Authorities said when the men left, they went to a bar, where they caused a scene by making threats and cursing.

The men were arrested on charges of disorderly intoxication and resisting an officer.

McAllister and Willard were released on bail.
