(USA TODAY) A groom flying from Atlanta to Costa Rica forced his Delta Air Lines flight to divert to the Cayman Islands after he got into a "drunken argument" with his new wife en route to their honeymoon, Reuters reports.
The incident was bad enough that the flight's crew opted to divert and make an emergency landing on Grand Cayman Island on Sunday.
The man was escorted from the flight and taken into custody by Cayman Islands police, but the bride remained on the aircraft and ultimately continued on with her trip to the Costa Rican capital of San Jose.
Royal Cayman Islands Chief Inspector Raymond Christian would not identify the couple's identity to Reuters, but did acknowledge that the man who was taken into custody is a U.S. citizen.
Reuters says the man was being held Monday in the Cayman Islands on a charge of drunk and disorderly conduct. Christian indicated he could face additional charges.
Delta spokeswoman Lindsay McDuff confirmed on the incident to Reuters, saying the crew operating Delta Flight 901 diverted to Grand Cayman because of a "disruptive customer."
"The flight landed without incident and the customer was met by local authorities," McDuff adds to Reuters.
