"Responding officers let the husband know the honeymoon was over and his new wife was going to jail," said Murfreesboro Police Department Sgt. Kyle Evans.

"She pulled out of her wedding dress a 9 mm pistol, pointed it at her new husband's head, and pulled the trigger," Sgt. Evans added.

Bystanders claimed that incident occurred after the newlyweds got in an explosive argument while drinking outside the Clarion Inn in Murfreesboro, Tennessee.

"After the incident, she went to the bathroom and disposed of the weapon hiding it in the bathroom," Sgt. Evans claimed.

While at first the couple denied having being involved in the nearly fatal event, police recovered shell casings and further evidence, which led to Prichard's arrest.

They were both "Very uncooperative with authorities," added Sgt. Evans.

While she was initially charged with aggravated domestic assault, Prichard was released after posting a $15,000 bond. Officials announced that the case will be forwarded to the Rutherford County Grand Jury and the investigation will continue.
