Highlights: After the "wedding of the century" in Paris, the young American groom faces life imprisonment in the United States. Jacob LaGrone is making headlines for shooting three police officers last March. The Texas attorney's office offered him a deal: no life sentence, but twenty-five years in prison all the same. Everything about this affair bears the seeds of a Hollywood film, the title of which already be proposed by William Blake: The Marriage of Heaven and Hell. The wedding ceremony is estimated to have cost up to €50 million.


In mid-November, the couple had organised what some are already calling the "wedding of the century" in Paris and Versailles. But the groom, Jacob LaGrone, is in fact being prosecuted across the Atlantic, where he faces life in prison.


The bride was in white, but the groom is not immaculate. After setting the Web ablaze on November 18 with a lavish wedding at Versailles, Jacob LaGrone is making headlines for less pompous events. According to the Washington Post, the young American faces life imprisonment for shooting three police officers last March.

Anyone who has taken to social media in recent weeks is bound to have come across the lavish "wedding of the century" ceremony, which experts have estimated at up to €50 million. Privatizing the Opéra Garnier for an agape-like dinner, the Channel House for a private tour, and the Palace of Versailles for the wedding evening, it's an understatement to say that Jacob LaGrone and Madelaine Brockway hit hard. Since then, videos have flooded social networks, provoking both admiration and embarrassment for so much excess. But if the three days of festivities were shocking, it is nothing compared to the case, revealed by the American media, including the Washington Post, which report that the groom is in fact about to end his life in prison.

Gunfire in Westworth Village

"Do you promise to remain faithful to Him in happiness or in trials?" Madelaine Brockway wouldn't have thought she'd have to follow the sacrosanct pledge so quickly. Indeed, less than two weeks after her incredible wedding, her husband Jacob LaGrone appeared in court in Fort Worth, Texas, where he faces up to life in prison. It all starts in Westworth Village, where Jacob and Madelaine live, in a sprawling mansion funded by the bride's father, according to the Daily Mail. On March 14, gunshots were apparently exchanged in their house and, alerted, neighbors decided to call the police. Once dispatched to the scene, three police officers ordered Jacob LaGrone to leave his house and turn himself in; That's when he fires and wounds them. Finally arrested, the young Texan was imprisoned, charged with "three counts of serious charges against a public official". He was released in April on payment of $20,000 (€18,000), the equivalent of his bail. Not out of the woods, the man who knew he would have to appear in court on November 30, has nevertheless decided to get married in the meantime.

Threats

Did Jacob LaGrone knowingly cheat on his wife? Did Madelaine Brockway not know that her future husband was on borrowed time? Magnanimous, did she want to give him a chance, believing that he could get away with it and not go to jail? So many questions that remain unanswered for the moment, hanging on the jury's decision, which should be made known in the coming days. According to the indictment, cited by Libération, LaGrone allegedly "intentionally and knowingly threatened [the officers] with imminent bodily harm" and "used or showed a lethal weapon during the assault, namely a firearm." The Texas attorney's office offered him a deal: no life sentence, but twenty-five years in prison all the same. Everything about this affair bears the seeds of a Hollywood film, the title of which would already be proposed, taken from a collection of poetry by William Blake: The Marriage of Heaven and Hell.
