A police report states that hours after exchanging vows on a Florida beach, a newlywed couple was arrested after they got intoxicated and began battering each other inside a hotel room. 61-year-old Daniel Gillen and 49-year-old GeGee Riposta were married last weekend on Clearwater Beach. According to arrest affidavits, Gillen and Riposta subsequently “became intoxicated” and “were arguing throughout the day.” Matters subsequently turned violent inside the couple’s room at the Clearwater Beach Hotel, as Gillen told cops that Riposta “physically started to attack him by scratching him on the chest.” Gillen “had noticeable scratch marks and injury to his torso which was consistent with his statements.” Riposta said that Gillen grabbed her by the neck and pushed her to the ground. Riposta’s claim was supported by “noticeable scratches and scrape marks on her knee.” Gillen was arrested for misdemeanor domestic battery and was later released from custody on his own recognizance. Since Riposta had a prior battery conviction, she was charged with felony battery and had to post $500 bond to get out of jail. (
