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

Share

The event ended in a drunken brawl after the groom hit on an underage waitress - then followed the teen into a bathroom stall and groped her, according to prosecutors.

During the reception, which was held at the Northampton Valley Country Club on November 24, 2018, Matthew Aimers, 31, allegedly asked the waitress if they could "go outside and makeout", according to an affidavit obtained by The Philadelphia Inquirer.

A groom was arrested at his own wedding reception for allegedly sexually assaulting a teenage waitress and fighting police.

Speaking of "all charges", Aimers faces charges of false imprisonment of a minor, corruption of minors, indecent assault, resisting arrest, indecent exposure, disorderly conduct, and harassment. While police were speaking to the club's manager about the initial report, a second fight broke out at the club's entrance, according to the criminal complaint.

While Aimers denies the assault and the ensuing brawl he's accused of starting, police say that Aimers approached the juvenile waitress and said "W$3 e can do whatever you want". Police halted the bus and demanded Aimers get off.

The waitress managed to break free and get out of the bathroom and says she's been left "shaken" by the incident.

The Northampton Valley Country Club declined Oxygen.com's request to comment. The victim told police she eventually shoved the groom aside and escaped the bathroom.

An employee told officers that Aimers had punched him after he tried to stop the groom from bringing alcohol outside.

Police allege Aimers physically threatened and "continuously called" the arresting officer a "pussy and a bitch" before being taken into custody.

Aimers' preliminary hearing for the sexual assault is scheduled for February 21.

In the meantime, he has been released on bail after posting ten per cent of the $492,000 (US $350K) bond set, according to court records.

"He maintains his innocence and he looks forward to clearing his name when this is all concluded", Aimers' attorney Louis Busico told KYW News Radio 1060.
