Groom arrested at his own wedding for 'sexually assaulting teenage waitress'

Groom arrested at his own wedding for 'sexually assaulting teenage waitress'

Matthew Aimers, 31, was charged on Wednesday in connection with the disastrous November nuptials at a country club near Philadelphia.

A Pennsylvania couple's wedding ended in a drunken brawl after the groom forced himself on an underage waitress - then followed the teen into a bathroom stall and groped her, according to prosecutors. He allegedly got into a fight with a club employee who tried to stop him from taking alcohol outside the reception hall onto country club grounds, police say.

Aimers then tried to board a nearby shuttle bus, despite the officers' commands to surrender.

The waitress told police he started kissing her against her will before trying to unbutton her trousers and then exposed himself, the criminal complaint alleges, reports KYW News Radio 1060.

A brief struggle ensued before police took Aimers into custody, the Philadelphia Inquirer reported.

According to a criminal complaint sent to Yahoo Lifestyle by the Bucks County District Attorney's Office, Aimers propositioned her for a hookup, saying "we can do whatever you want".

The waitress said she rejected him.

He told the young girl, whose name or age has not been revealed, they could do "whatever" she wanted, the affidavit states.

When Aimers began attempting to unbutton her trousers, the victim said, she grabbed his hands and pushed them away.

Aimers posted 10 percent of his $350,000 bail and has since been released from jail.

Aimers was charged with indecent assault, indecent exposure, imprisonment of a minor, harassment and related offenses. And for the altercation with the police, he faces disorderly conduct and resisting arrest.

Aimers is due back in court for sexual assault on February 21.

His lawyer, Louis Busico, says Aimers "completely maintains his innocence on all charges".

Yahoo Lifestyle could not locate Aimers for comment. "He did not commit any crime at his wedding reception and he looks forward to clearing his name after trial".
