Police say a Tennessee man died after hitting his head in a scuffle with the pastor who presided at his daughter's wedding.

Decatur County District Attorney Hansel McCadams says police were called twice to a dispute between 58-year-old Joseph Tucsnak and Pastor Chris Warren at the wedding on Saturday.

Then on Monday, the prosecutor says Tucsnak returned to the church in Parsons, about 100 miles southwest of Nashville. McCadams said Tucsnak went to his vehicle and came back with a hand in his pocket and lunged at the pastor.

Police say the pastor then pushed Tucsnak, who fell and hit his head on the pavement. He died Tuesday.

A person who answered the phone at the church hung up on an
Associated Press reporter seeking comment from the pastor.

No charges have been filed.
