2 arrests made after man points gun at newlywed couple, wedding guests

Warning: Graphic video

SOUTHWEST RANCHES, Fla. – Two men were arrested after cellphone video showed a man pointing a gun at a newlywed couple and their wedding guests during a reception last week at Cielo Farms in Southwest Ranches.

Wedding guests became frantic Thursday night as a man began yelling at everyone to get out, while pointing a gun at several people.

“I look up and there’s a gun pointed at me. So, at this point, I don’t know what to think, and I don’t know what he will do,” Jonathan Campo, the DJ and cousin of the bride, said.

Campo told Local 10 News the man became irate during the reception’s last song.

“He begins to wave it at everyone at the party, telling us to all get out, ‘get out, get out,’” Campo said.

Wedding guest Aixa Figueroa said she watched in horror as she dialed 911.

“I was terrified. I wasn’t sure if I was going to be going home without a family member,” Figueroa said.

According to jail records, the man seen in the video with the gun is Miguel Rodriguez-Albisu.

Florida Sunbiz, an official State of Florida website for the Division of Corporations, lists him as being affiliated with the business.

Albisu is facing nine counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, without intent to kill.

A man named Christian Sergio Rafart was also arrested at the venue for battery and resisting arrest.

Local 10 News reached out to Cielo Farms for comment, but have yet to receive a response as of the time of this story’s publication.
