Groom Sexually Assaulted Teen Waitress & Fought Cops At His Wedding Reception
Matthew Aimers has been charged with simple assault, disorderly conduct, and resisting arrest.
WILLINGBORO, PA — Wedding bliss was short-lived for the New Jersey groom who allegedly sexually assaulted a waitress at his reception before getting into a brawl with police.
The recently married Matthew Aimers, 31, approached a waitress, who was underage, at his November 2018 wedding reception at the Northampton Valley Country Club in Northampton Township, according to court documents.
He allegedly first propositioned her by asking her "to go outside and make out," and telling her she could do anything she wanted with him.
She rejected his advances — so according to police, he then followed her into a bathroom, pulled her into an empty stall, and exposed himself.
While in the bathroom, he allegedly offered her $100 to "kiss me like you mean it" and he pressed his penis against her pants before she managed to get away from him.
Following the alleged assault, police responded to a call from the country club. An employee of the club told officers that Aimers started throwing punches and pushing people after he tried to stop him from bringing alcohol outside the venue, according to the Philadelphia Inquirer.
Aimers also got into a fight with police officers before being taken into custody, according to court documents. He has been charged with simple assault, disorderly conduct, and resisting arrest.
Aimers’ attorney said that his client maintains his innocence and “looks forward to clearing his name when this is all concluded.”
He was released Wednesday on $350,000 bond, and is next due in court on February 21.
