Father of bride 'irate' over bill at Rock Hill restaurant, wields knife

ROCK HILL -- A man was charged with disorderly conduct at a Rock Hill, South Carolina, restaurant this weekend after he became "irate" over the bill and threatened to stab someone, police say.

The 50-year-old Rock Hill man was at White Horse Restaurant on Camden Avenue for a wedding party for his daughter Friday night, according to a Rock Hill police report. After the bill arrived, he was angry he had to pay for the alcohol because he thought the groom's father was supposed to pay for all of the dinner, the report states.

Witnesses say he then got into an argument with several people in the wedding party and began to throw things, whipped out a knife and said he was going to stab someone, the report states.

When officers arrived, he was sitting in his truck in the parking lot and stepped out of the car, where he was arrested and charged with disorderly conduct, according to the report
