A British man has been arrested by police on suspicion of assaulting his wife just hours after they got married during a holiday in Majorca.

The unnamed groom is said to have hit his bride at their boozy wedding party after having too much to drink.

The surreal incident happened on Friday night at an unidentified venue in the tourist town of Peguera in the municipality of Calvia the same day they tied the knot nearby.

Local reports police were called just before 9pm after the Brit ‘got violent’ as he celebrated on the couple’s big day, with respected island newspaper Ultima Hora saying officers had to restrain him before arresting him after being informed he had assaulted the bride.

The woman is said to have left the venue and returned later, unaware he had been taken into police custody, to look for him.

Civil Guard officers took charge of the case after the arrest by local police.

It was not immediately clear today if he had appeared before a judge in a closed court hearing.

The ‘assaulted’ bride is understood to have declined to press charges, although there has not yet been any official confirmation.

The Civil Guard in Majorca could not be reached for comment at midday today.
