Groom Struggles With Police In Mugshot After Being Arrested On Wedding Day

A groom who was arrested on his wedding day struggled with cops while they attempted to take his mugshot.

Nicholas Ruthenberg, 25, was arrested just hours after he said, 'I do', after allegedly driving the wrong way down a one-way street and smashing into another car in Vero Beach in Florida.

Cops from the Indian River County Sheriff's Office chased the suspect on foot and eventually apprehended him before taking him into custody.

The arresting officers discovered Ruthenberg had got hitched a few hours previous at a venue that was just a few blocks from the crash.

A police report seen by The Smoking Gun states that cops thought the man appeared to be 'under the influence of an unknown substance'.

The report goes on to say that when he arrived at the Indian River County Sheriff's Office he began to shout 'all hail Donald Trump' '1771' and 'I got my X1 and X2' but refused to elaborate on what he meant with his random proclamations.

Ruthenberg is also alleged to have refused to take part in a mugshot - which lead to an unusual set of photos that appear to show cops struggling to keep Ruthenberg facing forward for the mandatory photograph.

The report says a breathalyser gave a 0.0 reading for alcohol, so officers decided to carry out a urine test to check for drugs.

However, the test didn't quite go to plan, with Ruthenberg having to be placed back in handcuffs after he stuck his fingers up his own bottom.

The report reads: "While I was getting the urine test ready with Officer Ooley, Ruthenberg started to take his pants off and then spread his buttocks. During which time he placed two fingers in his anus."

The report adds that 'approximately three minutes later', Ruthenberg had calmed down, washed his hands and provided a urine sample.

Ruthenburg was charged with leaving the scene of an accident, causing serious bodily injury, and driving under the influence.

He was released after posting a $2,000 (£1442) bond but will return for arraignment on 1 October.

LADbible has contacted the Indian River County Sheriff's Office for comment.
