In a real life twist on the critically panned Hollywood  flick "Bride Wars," a woman who wasn't invited to her sister's wedding reception showed up anyway and attacked the bride, pulling out clumps of her hair, police said.

Annmarie Bricker, 23, of Valparaiso, Ind. was arrested on a misdemeanor charge of battery.

Jeremy Glotzbach told police he was hosting a reception for newlyweds Nicholas Landry and Lori Kappes at his home on Jan. 23 when Bricker, Kappes' sister, attacked Kappes on the front porch.

Bricker pulled out clumps of Kappes' hair, struck her head and took the bride to the ground during a struggle, according to the Porter County Sheriff's Department.

The struggle has echoes of a scene from "Bride Wars," the Kate Hudson and Anne Hathaway vehicle. In the film, the starlets play best friends who have a falling out after each refuses to move her wedding date when both are mistakenly booked for the same time at a fancy Manhattan hotel. The stars then try to sabotage each others' wedding preparations with peak chicanery occurring on the big day itself.  

Bricker told police she went to the house because she "just wanted to talk" to her sister and parents about family problems. She said she never touched her sister, but five witnesses contradicted her, authorities said. Kappes did not need medical treatment.

Bricker later resigned from her job as a Porter County 911 dispatcher, officials said.
