A Briton has been arrested by police on suspicion of assaulting his wife while on holiday in Mallorca just hours after their wedding.
The unnamed groom is said to have hit his bride at their boisterous wedding reception.
The incident is believed to have happened at an unidentified location in the tourist town of Peguera, in the municipality of Calvia, on Friday night – the same day the couple tied the knot nearby.
Local reports Police were called just before 9pm after the Brit “turned violent” while partying on the couple’s big day.
Island newspaper Ultima Hora said officers should have held him back before arresting him after being told he had assaulted the bride.
The woman is said to have left the venue and later returned, unaware that he had been taken into police custody to search for him.
Civil Guard officers took over the case after the arrest by local police.
It was not immediately clear whether he had appeared before a judge at a closed court hearing.
The “assaulted” bride is said to have declined to press charges, although there is no official confirmation yet.
The Guardia Civil in Mallorca could not be reached for comment this afternoon.
