Maximiliano Lopez, 28, of Torrance and Eric Brogmus, 22, of Burbank were cited on suspicion of misdemeanor battery and unlawful blocking of a sidewalk.

They are scheduled to appear in Torrance court on March 28.

Mesnick and Malaney, who met during last year's edition of "The Bachelor," reportedly were married in front of an estimated 300 guests who turned out on a rainy day at the Terranea Resort.

The wedding was taped for a two-hour ABC special "The Bachelor: Jason and Molly's Wedding."
