Broward wedding viral video shows the horrible side of a wedding venue owner. The wedding ended abruptly when the venue owner started forcing the guests to leave. The owner, Rodriguez Albisu, waved and pointed a gun toward the clueless guests.
According to the police report, the venue was booked until 11:30 p.m., but the owner told the hosts to shut it off half an hour before the decided time.
The incident happened just after 11 p.m. on March 2nd, 2023, at the Cielo Farms wedding venue in Southwest Ranches.
“Imagine you’re just getting married, my best friend’s first act as a husband is to step in front of a gun for his wife,” said Edward Faria, the groom’s best man.
Multiple guests said they felt trapped in the property.
The viral footage showed the 58-year-old Rodriguez Albisu waving a revolver in the middle of the reception. He was heard shouting, ‘get out! Get out!’ in the video.
Albisu was accompanied by his 31-year-old son Christian Rafart. Rafart assisted his father in backing out on his word.
According to the DJ at the wedding, Rafart first approached him and told him that all the guests needed to leave about 30 minutes before the end time of the contract.
When the guests and the hosts did not succumb to Rafart and his father’s ridiculous demands, he started punching and pushing people to assert power.
Jonathan Campo, also known as DJ Rich Homie Jon, said he was DJing his cousin’s wedding when the disturbance began.
“I’m just like staring down the barrel of the gun like and just trying to brace myself to get shot cause I don’t know what your intent is, and why am I in this situation? said DJ Homie Jon.
Rafart was arrested on charges including battery, resisting arrest, and violating probation. His father, Rodriguez Albisu, was arrested on nine counts of aggravated assault, the arrest report stated.
The attorney representing Rodriguez-Albisu said what happened before the video was taken will be crucial when trying the case in court.
Attorney Kenneth Padowitz said when the evidence comes out in this case about what happened before the tape was rolling, it is going to show that my client is, in fact, not guilty.
