Drunk groom, 25, scraps with cops in mugshot as hes arrested on wedding day

A 'drunk' groom was seen fighting against cops trying to take his mugshot after he was arrested hours following his wedding.

The 25-year-old is accused of driving the wrong way down a street and crashing a car on his wedding day.

Nicholas Ruthenberg was taken into custody after the alleged crash in Vero Beach, Florida, on Monday afternoon.

He reportedly fled the scene on foot but was then apprehended by authorities and taken to Indian River County Sheriff's Office.

The driver of the other car was taken to hospital for medical treatment.

Police found out that Ruthenberg had tied the knot only hours before the reported car crash.

Ruthenberg, a registered Democrat, is said to have yelled 'All Hail Donald Trump' when he arrived at the Sheriff's office.

It's also said he refused to pose for a mugshot and wouldn't remain still for the camera.

Photos from inside the premises show handlers struggling to get him to take the picture.

It appears there were several people, with different coloured gloves, trying to get the mugshot.

According to The Smoking Gun, who obtained a copy of the arrest report, he 'began to take his pants off and spread his buttocks' when he was asked to provide a urine sample.

Cops asked for the urine sample to 'determine the presence of chemical or controlled substances after Ruthenberg returned a blood alcohol level reading of 0.0.

An investigator concluded the man's erratic behaviour "was consistent with someone under the influence of some kind of stimulant".

He was charged with DUI and leaving the scene of an accident causing serious bodily injury.

Ruthenberg was released from jail after posting $2000 bond (£1450).

He and his bride reportedly got wed at the Indian River County Courthouse in Vero beach.

He will have to return to the same courthouse for his arraignment, scheduled for October 1.
