A Seminole County bride and a wedding caterer were arrested after deputies say several wedding guests were served food laced with drugs.

First responders on the scene treated several people who were complaining of stomach pains and vomiting. A female guest reportedly told fire officials that the food was laced with marijuana. Another guest said that he was feeling "ill and high," according to the report, and that he wanted to press charges against the people responsible for possibly lacing his food. He, along with other guests, were taken to South Seminole Hospital for treatment.

Deputies spoke with Glenny and another person and asked if she had consented to or requested that the food contain marijuana. The report states that she stared at the deputy with a blank expression before saying no. Deputies then tried to locate the catering manager, Bryant, but the staff had already left. 

Several samples of glassware and food were collected from the party to be tested, including chocolate covered strawberries, pudding ‘shot’ desserts, and lasagna.
