US cops taser groom, cuff drunken bride
A wedding night to remember
In what appears to have been a dress rehearsal for the forthcoming Croxteth wedding reception of Manchester United leather-botherer Wayne Rooney and squeeze Coleen McLoughlin*, Californian cops last Saturday arrested a pair of newlyweds after their post-hitching party "got out of hand".
According to AP, the Vallejo festivities required two visits by law enforcement, and on the second call-out "officers stunned both the groom and his cousin with a Taser when they both became aggressive towards the officers".
The two chaps were cuffed for "allegedly resisting arrest", while the bride earned a trip to the cells "on suspicion of public intoxication". The happy couple spent the first night of married bliss in jail, the report concludes. ®
*For those of you not up to speed on the Rooney-McLoughlin liaison, the British press recently reported that the couple were planning to hold their wedding reception at an exclusive, star-studded bash on the Italian Riviera, rather than in Rooney's home town.
There would then be another reception in Croxteth for the members of both families whose presence at the gala do was not required. As the Telegraph explains: "The Liverpool celebration may prove difficult to control, as the Rooneys have a history of conflict with the McLoughlins. On Miss McLoughlin's 18th birthday, police were called in when a brawl broke out.
"Natalie Rooney exposed a breast on Miss McLoughlin's 21st birthday last year, while her [23-year-old gay transvestite] brother Stephen is said to have offered his services as a bridesmaid."
