Groom accused of sexual assault of teen waitress at wedding led away in handcuffs

Posted: Updated:
PENNSYLVANIA -

Police in Pennsylvania say a groom from New Jersey forced himself on a teenage waitress at his wedding reception and then was taken from the hall in handcuffs over a drunken brawl.

According to the Philadelphia Inquirer, Matthew Aimers, of Willingboro, was arraigned Wednesday on charges of indecent assault, indecent exposure, false imprisonment of a minor and related offenses.

An affidavit says the waitress had spurned Aimers' advances during the reception.

Police allege he followed her into a bathroom and sexually assaulted her.

He's also charged with simple assault, disorderly conduct and resisting arrest after police say he fought officers responding to a brawl at the reception.

A worker alleged Aimers punched him after he tried to stop him from bringing alcohol outside.

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

AP wire services helped contribute to this report.
