A newlywed Massachusetts couple spent their wedding night in separate jail cells after police said the bride tried to run over an old flame of the groom.

      Hoof it over to Facebook to join the weird news herd.

Police said 22-year-old Hyannis resident Marissa Ann Putignano-Keene tried Monday to run over the other woman and the woman's son in a parking lot. The intended victim later told police that she had previously been in an intimate relationship with the groom.

The couple got married at Barnstable Town Hall and split a bottle of champagne afterward, police said.

The bride was charged with assault and battery with a dangerous weapon. Her husband, 37-year-old Timothy Keene, was riding in the car with her and was charged with disorderly conduct.  Keene, a registered sex offender, was convicted of lewd and lascivious behavior in 2000, the Cape Cod Times reported on its Web site.

Both were released Tuesday. It was unclear if either had hired an attorney.
