Groom of viral $59 million wedding offered 25 years in prison for shooting North Texas cops

The groom of a recent viral $59 million wedding was offered 25 years in prison as part of a plea deal after being charged with shooting three state law enforcement officers North Texas, according to court records.

Jacob LaGrone, 29, was charged Aug. 3 with three counts of aggravated assault on a public servant, according to Tarrant County court records. He is accused of shooting a Westworth Village police officer and two Westover Hills police officers on March 13.

Westworth Village officials told Star-Telegram media partner WFAA-TV that officers went to a home to check on a report of shots fired. When they arrived at the house, “they came under fire,” the city said.

LaGrone’s indictment states that he knew the officers were public servants and that he “used or exhibited a deadly weapon during the commission of the assault, namely a firearm.”

LaGrone, a Nashville native, married Madelaine Brockway, whose family lives in the Fort Worth area, on Nov. 18 in a wedding estimated to cost $59 million. The ceremony in Paris, France, was dubbed “the wedding of the century” in a TikTok video posted by HMR Designs.

Madelaine Brockway and others documented the five-day celebration extensively on Instagram, which attracted widespread attention on social media. The wedding included a night at the Palace of Versailles, a private lunch in the Chanel Haute Couture suite and a rehearsal dinner at the Paris Opera. The pop-rock group Maroon 5 performed at the wedding reception.

The bride’s father, Bob Brockway, owns a group of Mercedes-Benz dealerships in Florida and several homes in the Fort Worth area.

The couple’s wedding registry includes items such as a $12,500 crystal butterfly house, an $860 gravy boat and a $1,450 vase.
