Bride and Groom Spend Wedding Night in Police Cells After Fight at Their Reception
As far as romantic first nights go following your wedding, this one is probably low on the list.
A bride and groom ended up in police cells after they allegedly attacked security staff while trying to book into their hotel after their reception.
The unnamed groom is alleged to have launched at a security guard cutting his face in the process.
Meanwhile, his wife – still in her wedding dress – is reported to have hurled racist abuse at the guards who were Asian.
Staff at the Hilton on Deansgate in Manchester contacted police shortly before 11.30pm yesterday.
They rowed with hotel staff shortly before the alleged attacks and were arrested soon after, according to the Manchester Evening News.
Nick Adderley, Chief Superintendent of Greater Manchester Police 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 allegedly being assaulted and racially abused.”
