Prospective groom in punch-up with lawman

A 26-year-old groom-to-be may find the only oaths he takes will be at his trial after he injured a police officer in the capital on Saturday night.

The suspect and his friend accidentally crashed into the officer with their moto when the officer stepped out of his car.

The angry policeman attempted to fight the men, who swung their helmets and injured both the cop and his wife.

When more police arrived, the 20-year-old suspect used the moto to flee, leaving his friend to face the law. NOKORWAT
