Drunken Groom’s Fight With Bride Forces Emergency Landing On The Way To Honeymoon

Ah, romance is in the air! Or it might’ve been if the groom hadn’t allegedly gotten drunk and fought with the bride on their way to the the honeymoon, forcing a Delta Air Lines plane to make an emergency landing. Sounds like the honeymoon was over before it ever got a chance to start.

According to authorities, the flight was headed from Atlanta to Costa Rica, but instead was forced to stop and land on Grand Cayman island, reports Reuters. Officials say the man got into a drunken disagreement with his new wife on the plane, and the man was escorted from the flight after it landed.

He was held on a charge of drunk and disorderly conduct by the local police and could be facing more charges under international air law.

A spokeswoman for Delta confirmed that a “disruptive customer” was the impetus for the plane’s diverted route.

“The flight landed without incident and the customer was met by local authorities,” she added.

The bride reportedly stayed on the plane for the rest of the flight to San Jose, Costa Rica, so let’s hope she at least has a relaxing trip.
