A bride's stepfather has been charged with stabbing the woman's father and brother in an argument at her wedding reception, authorities said.

The dispute began inside the Liberty Township Community Center on Saturday and spilled into the parking lot, where the men each were stabbed several times, Union County Chief Deputy Tom Morgan said.

Sheriff's deputies responding to a 911 call arrested Eric D. Adams in his car about two miles away, Morgan said.

Adams, 36, of Plain City, was being held Monday in the Tri-County Jail in Mechanicsburg on two counts of felonious assault, a jail officer said. His bond was set at $250,000 on Monday in Marysville Municipal Court, Morgan said. A preliminary hearing was set for May 3.

Rick Diamond Sr., 45, and Rick Diamond Jr., 18, both of Raymond, were flown by helicopter to Ohio State University Medical Center in Columbus. The elder Diamond was in fair condition Monday, and his son was released Sunday, hospital administrator Jonathan Stewart said.

It wasn't immediately clear what sparked the dispute.

Raymond is 35 miles northwest of Columbus.
