Authorities say a heavily intoxicated mother of the bride slapped her daughter as she tried to escort her out of her wedding reception in Massachusetts.

Prosecutors say 55-year-old Leslie Duane of West Haven, Conn., was drunk Sunday after the ceremony and caused a scene at the Arabian Horse Farm Inn in Sudbury. The bride and several guests escorted Duane out of the reception. Duane allegedly slapped her daughter as she was helping her into a car.

The MetroWest Daily News ( http://bit.ly/1etYIDJ ) reports that Duane was freed on $200 bail and ordered to have no contact with her daughter after pleading not guilty to assault and battery Wednesday.

Duane's lawyer says the daughter tried to bail out her mother and that the no contact order is too much.
