Newlyweds Get Into Fight At Honeymoon Hotel, Spend Their Wedding Night in Jail

Posted in: , , ,

A bride and groom spent their first night as a married couple in jail after being arrested by police at a Manchester hotel following a brawl at the Hilton hotel where they intended to begin their honeymoon. The couple reportedly started quarelling with hotel staff as they tried to check in.

Staff had to call for extra help from security guards, and the 25-year-old groom, wearing his wedding suit, then allegedly attacked a security guard, cutting his face in the fight. The bride, also still in her wedding dress, was accused of shouting racist abuse at the guards, who were Asian.

The cellphone photograph of the alleged matrimonial misbehaviour above was taken by a bystander in a taxi.

The witness said: "The bride had a cigarette in her mouth. I couldn't see the groom.

"It looked like the police were trying to calm her down."

The groom was arrested on suspicion of assault while his wife was held on suspicion of a racially aggravated public order offence. They were taken to the local police station, where they spent the night in separate cells.

Nick Adderley, Chief Superintendent of Greater Manchester Police's North Division said his officers made the right decision. He said: "Police officers were asked attend and we did so.

"We then obviously had to pain over the decision whether it was right thing to do to arrest.

"But it absolutely was and I support the officers who made that decision.

"We can't have a situation where, regardless of what ceremony they have been to, people are being allegedly assaulted and racially abused."
