Groom at $59 million internet-streamed wedding receives 25 years in prison for shooting police officers in North Texas

The groom of a recent $59 million wedding that was leaked online was offered 25 years in prison as part of a plea deal after being charged with shooting three police officers in North Texas, court records show.

Jacob LaGrone, 29, was charged Aug. 3 with three counts of aggravated assault on an officer, Tarrant County court records show. He is accused of shooting at 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 were called to a home to check on a report of gunfire. When they arrived at the home, “they were shot at,” the city said.

LaGrone's indictment states that he knew the officers were government employees and that he “used or displayed a deadly weapon, namely a firearm, in carrying out the attack.”

LaGrone, a Nashville native, married Madelaine Brockway, whose family lives in the Fort Worth area, on Nov. 18. The wedding cost an estimated $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 extensively documented the five-day celebration on Instagram, which garnered widespread attention on social media. The wedding included an overnight stay at the Palace of Versailles, a private lunch in the Chanel Haute Couture Suite, and a rehearsal dinner at the Paris Opera. Pop-rock band 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 a $12,500 crystal butterfly house, an $860 gravy boat and a $1,450 vase.
