A Pennsylvania man, 31-year-old John Delozier, has been arrested and charged after being accused of assaulting and choking his brand new wife right on their wedding night.
The bride, name withheld for privacy reasons, told the police that her new husband, Delozier, began arguing with her over a wedding gift they received. They had gotten some extra cash, and ended up arguing on where to spend that cash.
The bride says that he accused her of “only caring about money” before he attacked her, choking her so bad she had to call the police and ambulence.
