(Newser) – The honeymoon was over pretty quickly for at least one half of a couple who flew out of Atlanta bound for Costa Rica: The Delta Air Lines jet was forced to make an emergency landing in the Cayman Islands after the drunken groom started arguing with his bride, reports Reuters. The 33-year-old man "was arrested for being drunk and disorderly, and he is in custody pending further inquiries," a police spokesman tells Cayman27. He may face further charges under international air law. After a brief delay, the flight continued to its destination—with the bride on board.
