It's not quite the way most couples would want to spend their first night together as husband and wife.Police in Houston, Texas say were conducted a "March Madness" crackdown on drunk driving over the weekend.

The couple was pulled over and the groom, Billy Puckett, was arrested for driving while intoxicated.

Police were going to drive the bride, Jade McClane, home, but officers say she became belligerent, and demanded to drive the car home. She was then arrested for public intoxication.

The Harris County district attorney's office says it hopes the DWI effort will reduce drinking during spring break and the NCAA basketball tournament.
