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

The Philadelphia Inquirer says Matthew Aimers, of Willingboro, New Jersey, 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."
