A woman photographed wearing what appeared to be a wedding dress during her impaired-driving arrest in southern Arizona disputes that she was taken into custody on the way to her wedding.

The image of Amber Young being arrested Monday while wearing a white open-back dress made its rounds on social media.

She was arrested in Marana after she became involved in a crash.

Her attorney Michelle Behan says Young was arrested on her way to meet a friend for lunch, not to a wedding.

She says Young isn't engaged and insisted she was wearing a sun dress, not a wedding gown.

Police spokesman Sgt. Chriswell Scott says video shows Young telling officers she was on her way to get married and confirming she was wearing a wedding dress.
